Monticello Academy was founded in West Valley City by parents who wanted more for their children than a typical public school provides. They wanted a school that:

  • Focuses on academic achievement and prepares students for advanced course work in junior high and high school
  • Is rich in history and cultural literacy
  • Reinforces traditional American values of hard work and strong moral character, and
  • Doesn’t skimp on the arts, music, technology, and physical education

For over a decade, Monticello Academy has been the realization of that dream for families in Salt Lake County. Monticello Academy opened a second campus in West Point, in north Davis County, for the 2019-2020 school year.


  • I am very impressed with the quality of the staff at Monticello Academy, they have been so friendly and knowledgeable! My son’s teacher has been wonderful to work with, she addresses all my questions and concerns. The curriculum at Monticello is also challenging and engaging, I am amazed at what my son learns every day!

    We love Monticello!! I know my child is receiving an excellent education experience as well as being taught core moral values that will stay with him throughout his life. The teachers and staff go above and beyond to work with your child and recognize that they are individuals with specific needs and talents.

  • Monticello is an excellent school. The teachers care about the students. I love that they still have art and music when [other[ public elementary schools no longer have it. My son loves going to school.
