Building Creative Minds

At Salt Lake Arts Academy we envision all students excelling throughout the middle school years, with confidence, passion and engagement. We prepare students to become confident and creative builders of their future, equipped throughout the arts and academics to take responsibility for shaping our community.


Applications for 2017-18 School Year Due by February 24!

Salt Lake Arts Academy will conduct our Admissions Lottery at the end of this month. All applications for new students must be submitted online by Friday, February 24. Returning students do NOT need to fill out an application, but incoming siblings of returning students DO need to submit an application to the Lottery. Notification of Admissions status will be sent the first week of March.

Creative Minds Take Flight -- SLArts Annual Campaign!

How can we help our students soar through the wild blue yonder of adolescence? By giving them a rigorous, arts-enriched education in a small school where they are well-known by teachers and peers. Our Annual Campaign is our biggest fundraising initiative of the year -- can you help? We invite all families, grandparents and friends to participate in the campaign to help us offer a free public middle school experience unlike any other in our state. Visit our Annual Campaign page to learn more and find out how you can be a part of Building Creative Minds!

Admissions Information Nights: February 7, 5:00 p.m.

Considering applying to Salt Lake Arts Academy for the 2017-18 school year? Join us for our last Admission Information Night on Tuesday, February 7, at 5 p.m. The event begins at 5 p.m. with a presentation from our principal, Amy Wadsworth, followed by a Q&A session and a tour of our school led by our 8th Grade Ambassadors. Prospective students and parents are all welcome to come see what we're about! We strongly recommend families and students to attend an Information Night before the Admissions Lottery is run in February.
