Who We Are
We are a group of passionate parents, teachers, administrators, technologists, entrepreneurs, and business leaders focused on creating amazing educational experiences for every child.
Why We Are Different
Freedom of Choice
With My Tech High you can develop a full-time, personalized learning program and tailor instruction based on the individual interests, needs, and skills of your child.
Participants can select from a wide variety of providers to design a personalized education plan that meets the needs of your unique child.
We help you create an engaging environment where your child can feel motivated, challenged and joyful about learning!
When learning is personalized, children begin to take ownership of their learning and start developing the ability to solve problems that are relevant to their present and future success. The uniqueness of each child drives the individualized education plan and creates an environment where children can thrive and develop patterns of success, confidence, and excellence.
Our children are not standard. It’s important to recognize each individual child’s strength and help them build upon what they want to pursue and learn in life.”Matt Bowman
A Full-time Public School Program for Students Ages 5-18
Students participating in the My Tech High distance education program are enrolled in a full-time, public school and are provided the resources needed to design a customized learning plan. Based on the needs and interests of each child, a customized, year-long schedule with 6-7 periods including both core and elective courses is created. Through personalized support from certified teachers and mentors, students are enabled to progress through the program at their own pace with curriculum, courses, and activities tailored to their unique needs.
High-quality Curriculum and Certified Teachers
All students are supported by experienced, certified teachers and are provided unlimited access to school-approved curriculum in the four core subject areas:
- English/Language Arts
- Social Studies
Electives Teach Real World Skills
In addition to core classes, students also have access to a wide variety of elective courses such as Java Programming, Game Design, Robotics, 3D Printing, and many more.
These elective courses are meant to align with the student’s interests, knowledge, and strengths to prepare them for success in their future careers and life.
We Are Here to Help
Our administrators, teachers, tech mentors, and staff are available nearly around-the-clock to help answer any questions you or your student might have.

Overwhelmed with the idea of educating your child at home? We can help!
Will my child be able to get into a good college?
Yes! Over the past 10 years, students from our program have successfully attended any college of their choice – including BYU, University of Utah, Utah State, Stanford, Harvard, and everywhere in-between.
What if my child is not motivated to learn?
You’ll be amazed at what happens when a child is given the opportunity to experience a truly personalized education. Finding what works best for each child empowers them to love learning and expand in ways you never thought possible.
How will my child learn important social skills?
Between field trips, community events, and parent-led activities, students of all ages in our program have many opportunities to connect with other students that parents often have to actually LIMIT the time spent in group settings.
Additionally, students of any age can participate in extracurricular activities at their local district school and students in grades 9-12 may take up to 2 on-site classes at their local district school (in addition to LDS Seminary).
