Open Quote Past student- I went here from my sophomore year till I graduated. I never was into school spirit, however, this school won my heart. It challenged me to be my best and I came out of it more prepared for life than the average high schooler. I learned so much from the teachers, whom of which love what they do and love to make it more than just your usual high school experience. I will forever miss this school. I haven't been able to find any other teachers or professors quite like the ones I found in high school. Close Quote

Open Quote I absolutely love it at AOC! The staff is extremely helpful and really challenge the students to reach their full potential. I started going to Academy of the Canyons for my sophomore year and the students there were very accepting and welcoming. Overall, the student body is much more driven and mature than the average public high school. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
