High School Academics

Online High School Curriculum

Career Academy of Utah (CAU) knows success is not a single destination, and that the journey can often take many turns. No matter the path, we believe in unlocking every learner’s potential by meeting them where they are and helping them reach their goals.

As students move through middle school and into high school, their work becomes increasingly independent. High school courses are designed for students targeting an immediate career, a two or four-year university, or a local community college.*
