 South Valley - The Utah State Board of Education recently approved the addition of a new charter school in Herriman—Athlos Academy. The school is slated to open for the 2016-2017 school year. Located at the corner of Herriman Parkway and the Mustang Trail Way, the 90,000-square-foot building will have state-of-the-art classrooms and an indoor physical fitness center. The school will employ more than 60 teachers and staff and will serve students kindergarten through eighth grade, with room for around 800 students. 

“We are really excited to bring this innovative new school to students and parents in Herriman and the surrounding communities,” Andy Lavin, chair of the Athlos Academy of Utah governing board, said. “We know that physical activity and learning are inextricably connected, and will contribute to students’ life-long success by encouraging their development into confident, energetic and resilient adults.”

Charter schools are public schools open to all students at no cost.  According to the Utah State Office of Education, as of October 2014, there were 110 charter schools in Utah. Each charter has its own learning model. Athlos Academy strives to empower students to achieve successful lives by building on three foundational pillars: Prepared Mind, Healthy Body and Performance Character. Athlos uses an academic curriculum as well as an athletic curriculum. Students of all abilities participate several times a week in an age-appropriate fitness curriculum that also incorporates health and nutrition. 

Grit, leadership and social intelligence are the foundations of the Performance Character pillar. Athlos Academy teaches students the importance of these character strengths to assist in social development. 

Enrollment for Athlos Academy will begin January 2016.
