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.

Now enrolling for the 2015-2016 academic year

Enrollment is now open for a limited number of spaces in our upper and middle school. Join us in our new campus at the former 49th Street Galleria! In partnership with AISU, we are able to offer our unique program tuition-free to Utah residents. Please note that we will charge fees for our expeditionary program and international trips. Contact the admissions office  for more information at 801-467-5911 or Email Admissions.

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.
