Telos believes that students need teacher attention and patience to succeed, not a bunch of packets and endless hours on the computer. Telos is passionate about strengthening students and helping them achieve a diploma.

As a student with needs there are many options for high school. Building a robust learning experience with a full teaching staff and maintaining a certified 1A school with 10 varsity sports for a normalized school experience is important.
For students at Telos High School it means live teachers in the classroom and a computer lab to work on homework. Telos High School means a great normalized school experience with PE and athletics, Valentine dances, and even a prom. It means high school buddies and hanging out in the gym. The goal of Telos High School is to help your student graduate and if college bound take the ACT proctored by Telos. If your student is younger all credit earned will move with them to the next school.

The freedoms and responsibilities of college life can be overwhelming for young people. Telos U has developed a network of academic supports and resources designed to assist students with a variety of needs, whether that be learning differences, stress sensitivity, school related anxiety, executive function challenges, etc.

Telos U works closely with Utah Valley University, the largest University in Utah, to help students who may have struggled in other settings find success as they pursue educational goals. Additionally, Telos U partners with public and private vocational programs, community colleges, skills training courses, and independent learning resources designed to give our students variety as we develop a customized education plan.

Young men in need of completing their high school diploma may attend school at Telos Academy (with other HS students on our boys youth campus).

Some students will be more fitted to learning a skilled trade. Telos U works closely with Utah Valley University, MTECH, and other schools to help connect students to the right vocational programs and resources. The goal is for every student at Telos U to emerge from the program with a marketable skill that supports greater independence.

An attraction to technology can be an obstacle to growth. It can also be a tool that unlocks the door to a rewarding profession. Telos U has a “Maker Space,” a high-tech innovation space for technically minded students. With the right student this “weaknesses into strengths” approach can build a foundation that strengthens them professionally, vs weakening them personally.

What familes had to say about Telos

Our experience at Telos was phenomenal! From the day we took the parent tour until the day our son was discharged. We were impressed by the team and staff’s skill, experience, professionalism and positive attitude.

I have been to 4 treatment centers. Wilderness, then Telos then a third (I left early from) and fourth (I graduated from). By far, Telos is the program that has gone above and beyond. Not only has Telos stuck by me when I refused to progress, Telos completely turned my life around.

Telos saved my son’s life! They customized his treatment to fit his needs and adapted it as he grew. They also treated our family along side him, ensuring the most successful transition home. We are eternally grateful.

It has been almost 7 years now since I was at Telos but the skills I learned there have help me through my life. I will always remember the great people who helped me along the way!

Our son spent 17 months at Telos and to say his time was transformative is an understatement. Their focus on helping kids and their families grow and heal is a caring and supportive environment and is truly exceptional.

I was at Telos 5 years ago… I still love this place. Before Telos my life was awful.

Our son just completed Telos. I can say Telos is a godsend. The therapeutic resources at every level are excellent. It takes a lot of courage and trust to hand over your child to an institution 2,000 miles away. Our son is finally able to move forward.

There really are not words to describe how amazing Telos is. From the owners and staff to the therapists and teachers. All are special people with caring hearts and amazing training. Though it took longer than expected, our family is soooooooo much better now. We are forever grateful.

There really is a special feeling and atmosphere at Telos, I recommend Telos to anyone!

I was a student at Telos for over a year. There have never been better experiences in my life than the ones that I had there. The Telos tools have improved my life immeasurably.

Great school for struggling teens. Intense therapy for the child and family. Fabulous resource, strong academics. They won’t give up on your child!

I’ve spent my career certifying private schools and I would put Telos High School in the top 5 nationally, even compared to the most prestigious private schools available.

OMG! Having our son at Telos was an amazing experience. Their program is very well thought out and covers all the many aspects of a struggling teen. I am proud to say that now he is a confident, capable and most important, HAPPY young man, ready to take all that he has learned in to the real world.

Thank you to all of the amazing people at Telos for changing our family forever.

Telos is Right for Me!
