Welcome to Bonneville Academy
Bonneville Academy is a public charter school located in Stansbury Park, Utah, that will educate 702 students from kindergarten to 8th grade. As a STEM school, Bonneville Academy’s curriculum will focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, allowing students to not only learn about these areas of focus but also have real world experiences.
Bonneville Academy was named for the Lake Bonneville, which covered a majority of Utah 32,000 to 16,800 years ago and literally shaped the topography of western Utah. This ancient freshwater sea left an unmistakable geological signature in Tooele County. The remnants of Lake Bonneville, including Great Salt Lake and the Bonneville Salt Flats, continue to contribute to STEM-related fields of study.
The Bonneville Academy mascot is a Mariner—one who navigates these scientific treasure troves, preparing for the waves of tomorrow. Our logo is a compass with four directional points symbolizing the four STEM areas:
Exploration and experimentation will teach students about the many facets of science and how it relates to the world we live in. They will learn to use the scientific method and will be given opportunities to test their hypotheses. Science will become a fun and engaging subject for all students.
The global economy of tomorrow demands students who have a strong understanding of the engineering design process. Our future leaders must be able to solve problems and work outside the box that tradition and society have set. Learning to build and design will inspire many to help improve our future.
Students will learn how technology influences our everyday lives by creating and building devices and software. Teachers and students will use current technology throughout the school day, and will explore the global environment through virtual field trips with people and professionals throughout the world.
Math is a universal language, a language that is essential to success in the modern, globalized workforce. A solid understanding and fluency in all aspects of mathematics will give students the skills they need to be successful in a wide variety of careers, including the science, technology, and engineering fields.
