Welcome to Saint Sophia School!
The Saint Sophia Team has planned a unique and engaging PreK curriculum for the coming school year. Children will learn about nature in our beautiful outdoor campus, planting, drawing, playing, and using all their senses to peak their natural curiosity. Through hands-on, project based experiences, students will make connections to all areas of the curriculum.
I invite you to become a member of the Saint Sophia Team. Think of the great possibilities awaiting you and your child. Visit us, take a tour of the school and grounds. Experience it yourself! I am excited to be a part of the “new beginnings” at Saint Sophia School and look forward to working with each and every one of you.

FOUNDED: in 1996 Saint Sophia School opened its doors in 1997 to the community of Salt Lake City, Utah. Beginning with Pre-K and Kindergarten, the school added a grade every year until reaching the sixth grade. The school is a non-profit 501 C 3 and is governed by an advisory board. The founding families reached a milestone in 2010 when Saint Sophia School’s first sixth grade class graduated from high school and in 2014 from college.
TODAY: In the spring of 2016, Saint Sophia School changed directions and focused exclusively on Early Childhood Education. We are thankful for the opportunity to provide children with the foundations for intellectual, social, spiritual, and physical growth in those critical years where they can Discover, Explore, Create, and Imagine.
BEST VALUE EDUCATION: Part of the original mission was to offer excellence in education while keeping tuition affordable. We still offer the best value for education with an outdoor campus that is unmatched anywhere in the valley.
COMMUNITY: Saint Sophia School is part of the Greek Orthodox Community of Greater Salt Lake.
TRADITIONS: Hellenism is the cultural tradition of modern Greeks that dates back to fifth Century Classical Greece. The tradition of Hellenism is dedicated to the education of every human being. Saint Sophia School continues in the spirit of Hellenism and draws on its tradition to advocate education as the primary means for the intellectual and physical development of children.
THE NAME: Saint Sophia is an early Christian martyr who dedicated her three daughters Faith, Hope, and Love to the church in protection of those same Christian ideals. The school determined its name based on Saint Sophia’s devotion to her children.
