Ivy Hall Academy was founded by James Lindahl and Alan Osmond in 1988. Both wanted a safe educational environment for their children entering junior high. The school began with 12 students and 3 years later expanded to include preschool through eighth grade.
For the next eight years, students enjoyed rigorous academics as well as swimming, tennis, racquetball, and track. At that time, the building was sold and the school relocated to west Provo where it stayed for the next 25 years. In August of 2020, Ivy Hall moved to its current location at Vintage Park in northeast Provo and added ninth grade as well as online options for grades 10 and 11. Each year, Ivy Hall will add another grade of high school until it is a PK3 – 12th grade school.
From its inception to the present, the school has enabled greatness by combining challenging academics, the arts, and leadership. Each year the curriculum is evaluated and improved. Excellent teachers influence the love of learning. Our well-rounded students go on to contribute to society and live successful, happy lives.
Ivy Hall Academy is accredited by Cognia™, a member of the Utah Private Schools Association, and a Leader In Me™ school.
The Ivy Hall Difference
At Ivy Hall, the sole focus is on the individual student experience. In order to ensure each student develops to the highest level they can, we keep our class sizes small to maximize student-teacher interactions and allow for group discussions where every child participates.
We work to help our students outperform their peers in mathematics through innovative and arduous math curriculum that prepares our students to be grade levels higher in math than their peers.
We subscribe to Franklin Covey’s “The Leader in Me” school transformation process. It teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.
Covey’s “7 Habits” guide both teachers and students in the classroom and play an important role in shaping children in every aspect of their lives.
Success is not only measured in academics at Ivy Hall, but also in a student’s ability to empathize and relate to their fellow students. We encourage students to build each other up and conduct their studies in a positive and supportive learning environment.
