Founded as an Episcopal school in 1867, Rowland Hall has been an independent institution since 1933. Rowland Hall’s mission is “to inspire students to lead ethical and productive lives through a college preparatory program that promotes the pursuit of academic and personal excellence.” The school offers a progressive education that includes a rigorous academic program, excellence in the arts, competitive athletic programs, and a nurturing and inclusive community. Located near the base of the stunning Wasatch mountain range and adjacent to the University of Utah, a world-class research university, and medical center, Rowland Hall attracts a diverse community of families who may be third generation Utahns or recent transplants choosing Salt Lake for its recreational and cultural opportunities. The school focuses on attracting and retaining excellent teachers by offering extensive professional development opportunities, salaries competitive with the highest-paying local public school districts, and a close-knit, supportive community.
