Deseret Academy

Deseret Academy was founded in 1991 when it became evident that students doing their work at home needed a vehicle whereby they could earn their high school diploma.
We have been homeschooling since 1977 and use several different curriculums that help students gain the skills necessary to succeed in college or the business world.
