Lower and Middle Schools

We are a conservative, faith-based school that focuses on reaching every student. Ivy Hall is a safe and experiential learning environment that is engaging, impactful, and fun!

At Ivy Hall Academy, we believe in a culture that combines educational excellence with a nurturing environment. We believe this environment creates not only academic excellence but future leaders. We are delighted to share our story with you and provide the information you need to choose the best educational path for your child.

Academic Excellence

Our Teaching Philosophy & Curriculum

At Ivy Hall, we teach to ensure our students learn skills for future leadership, entrepreneurship, and scholarship. We strive to teach the whole child and pride ourselves on being a fine arts institution that prepares our students for further education.

Each of our core and elective classes is the equivalent of a ‘gifted and talented’ program, helping students develop advanced academic excellence, self-confidence, and citizenship. Our teaching philosophy is centered on project-based learning, hands-on projects and exploring what we study through experiential field trips! 

The Ivy Hall Difference

We offer small class sizes, with a max size of 18 students per class for preschool-2nd grade, and a max size of 20 students per class for 3rd – 7th grades. 

This allows our teachers to give each student individualized attention, building strong student-teacher relationships.

This unique environment also fosters strong friendships among students, and our students build lifelong friendships with both local and international students, staying in touch long after their time at Ivy Hall has come to a close.

At Ivy Hall, we care about the whole child. We believe a well-rounded education fosters creativity, leadership, and teamwork.

This means we put great emphasis on their physical and social growth. Students have access to our playground, basketball court, and a 14-acre park three times a day.

We also offer Monday ski days in January and February at the Sundance ski resort. Our students spend that time taking ski lessons, building friendships, and enjoying time outdoors.

We are a conservative, faith-based learning institution. As such, we emphasize instilling values, ethics, and social responsibility in our students.

A core part of our learning design is creating an individual student success plan for each child. These plans are built to address each child’s unique academic, emotional, and social needs. As we meet these needs in every child, they build their self-confidence, leading to personal growth and learning leadership.

We offer field trips to all our students, including local experiences and foreign travel.

Here’s a glimpse into what our school offers:

  • From 3rd to 7th grade, our kids get hands-on experience in a science lab twice a week, making their learning come alive through experiments and real-world connections.
  • Our 7th graders embark on an incredible journey to London, tracing the Revolutionary trail through England and visiting historic sites in Boston, Washington D.C., and New York every year.
  • Throughout the year, students of all grades enjoy regular field trips across Utah, allowing them to actively engage with their local community and deepen their understanding of the world around them.
