Since 1990 Educational Advantage has been providing students with the help they need to succeed.

In the twenty years that we have been teaching, we have learned some basic truths. One of these truths is that every individual learns differently. While some students are able to learn and progress through a traditional public or private school system, others will only find a formula for success—for all or part of their educational requirements—in a smaller learning environment with a teacher who can get to know them and their learning needs.

Our main goal at Educational Advantage is to figure out what our students need in order to have a positive educational experience. We do this by first recognizing that each student is unique, and second by constructing a plan that best works for them. Essentially, helping our students reach their academic potential in the most enjoyable way possible is the ultimate objective.

With professional teachers who excel in their specific fields, we provide service for grades K-12. We provide a low teacher-to-student ratio, individual attention, customizable education plans, independent study options, graduation planning, support with college research/applications, and consultations. We understand the policies of both the State of Utah Department of Education and the School Districts for the communities we serve.

We look forward to meeting you and your student to discuss how EA can help!
