Utah Scholars


MNJHS has become a Utah Scholars school this year! The Utah Scholars Initiative is an academic program intended to motivate students to complete a defined curriculum while in high school to better prepare them for college and future employment. The focus is on helping students understand the academic preparation needed to succeed in post-secondary education and the workforce. 

All of our 8th grade students heard about Utah Scholars last Thursday. Presentations were given by parent volunteers during the US History classes. Our volunteers talk to students about why to go to college, what they can do now to prepare for college, and how to pay for it.
