Canyons Announces Dates, Times for SALTA Testing

Does your child have a strong sense of curiosity, a need to explore subjects in surprising depth, and ability to quickly learn complex information? 

If so, your student might be a candidate for Canyons District’s SALTA magnet program for advanced learners — and the time for applying to test into the program for the 2022-2023 school year is coming soon.

SALTA — Supporting Advanced Learners Toward Achievement — serves students who demonstrate significantly high cognitive and academic abilities in comparison to peers. Students in kindergarten through the seventh grade can apply online to test into the program starting Tuesday, Sept. 7. The deadline for applying is midnight Friday, Oct. 1. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept late applications.  

Due to the time-intensive and rigorous nature of the process for determining a student’s fit for the program, parents are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the testing requirements and characteristics of advanced learners (see below) before completing an application.
