In 2006, a group of parents frustrated with the educational opportunities available for students with autism, took it upon themselves to ensure the academic success of their children. After years of hard work, sacrifice and sheer determination, they opened the doors of the first charter school in Utah dedicated solely to the academic, behavioral and social success of students with high-functioning autism.
The same vision that motivated these early parents still drives the parents, educators and staff at Spectrum Academy today. What started as an elementary program of 150 students has, in the last twelve years, expanded to include elementary and high school programs in multiple campuses with a combined population of over 1,600 students.
