The educational system of Utah


Salt Lake City
Salt Lake City

The early Mormon settlers of Utah gave high priority to the development of education. The first school in the region was established at Salt Lake City in 1847, only three months after the arrival of the first settlers. Provisions for the establishment of schools in Mormon settlements were enacted by the legislature three years later. Settlers who opposed the Mormon domination of the public school system established a large number of private schools, the first of which was an Episcopal school founded in 1867 at Salt Lake City. The Mormons also established a private school system. In 1878 the Utah legislature established a permanent school fund supported by taxes and in 1884 provided for the establishment of high schools. The number of private schools gradually declined after 1890, when a territorial system of tax-supported schools was established.

Higher Education


The first institution of higher education in Utah was the University of Deseret (now the University of Utah, a public school), established at Salt Lake City in 1850. Brigham Young Academy (now Brigham Young University, a private school), in Provo, was established in 1875. Other Utah schools include Westminster College, in Salt Lake City; Weber State University, in Ogden; Utah State University, in Logan; Southern Utah University, in Cedar City; Salt Lake Community College, in Salt Lake City; and Utah Valley State College, in Orem.
