What’s Our Mission?

Realms of Inquiry, a cooperative learning community that offers an accredited curriculum for grades 6 through 12, is dedicated to providing a supportive learning environment for bright and intellectually creative students. Working closely with faculty, each student designs a program tailored to his or her particular interests and learning style.

Realms students learn to welcome challenges and take risks. They gain knowledge, skills, and confidence through experience in the classroom, the community, the outdoors, and international travel. Realms graduates become life-long learners, leaders, and innovators.

Enrollment coming for the 2014-2015 academic year

Realms will continue to consider applications for mid-year transfer students for the 2013-2014 year, however will begin enrollment for next year near the end of March.  Please check back for more details!

Middle School Panama Trip

After studying Spanish in a Panamanian home-stay immersion program and volunteering at a wildlife rehabilitation facility, the middle school stayed with the Naso tribe and learned something about living off the jungle. They made chocolate, starting with picking the cacao fruit. (more…)

Why Realms?

Most gifted programs consist of the same material, just with more homework and more tests. Gifted kids can be just as bored as they were before. Realms is an experiential learning school that engages bright and gifted, independent-thinking students through challenging academics and collaborative curricula, combined with fieldwork, wilderness, and international explorations.

Central location!

After more than 25 years in our old location, Realms has moved to a more modern campus in Murray. The new location provides better access to transportation, including a TRAX stop, and outdoor recreation sites. We believe the move will support our mission and focus, bringing our educational programs into a new and dynamic era. Call us today to arrange for your student to shadow a Realms student!

While you may have no choice when it comes to public school, in Utah, you have a wide variety of choices when you are choosing an independent school. (more…)
