Some kids breeze through school, but many struggle in a system unable to respond to their needs and eventually drop out. Concerned parents are desperate to help them succeed in school. They know that without a high-quality education their children are headed for an unproductive life and continued poverty. The social consequences of their failure are immense.
Children First Utah is an innovative nonprofit organization that provides half-tuition scholarships to private schools for qualified low-income families who have nowhere else to turn. Our program expands the educational options for families who need alternatives to the public school system. Participating families make tremendous sacrifices to pay their half of their children’s educational costs.
