I loved my time at Realms and love being a part of such strong community. The education I received has given me the strength and confidence to tackle every challenge I have faced in my life. I have not only been able to start my own business, go to a excellent college and travel around the world all with the skills and support of the wonderful teachers and staff!

Realms is unique in Utah. It has a very strong focus on learning through experience. Gifted children work with their teachers towards a curriculum that allows them to learn at the rate that is right for them. It has a very small student to teacher ratio and a highly committed faculty. Consider Realms! See them at www.realmsofinquiry.org
