News Flash
Dr. Ted Dintersmith recently released a new book (April 2018), "What School Could Be: Insights and Inspiration from Teachers Across America." The book includes an insightful interview with SAIL Academy's Director, Ms. Shellie Burrow.  Dr. Dintersmith visited all fifty states and interviewed teachers "doing extraordinary things in ordinary settings, creating innovative classrooms where children learn deeply and joyously, students who can’t wait to get to school each day as they develop purpose, agency, essential skill sets and mind-sets, and deep knowledge."  We are extremely proud that SAIL Academy was the only Utah-based school featured in the book!  You can find additional information on Ted and this enlightening book at

A Real Testimonial From a Formerly Discouraged Parent
"The public school system was not providing the resources and attention that our daughter really needed with her learning disability.  Her teacher would get very frustrated with her and could provide very little feedback to us on why she had such difficulties learning.  On the recommendation of a counselor, we got in touch with Shellie Burrow at SAIL Academy.  Shellie was fantastic at helping us understand with what was later diagnosed as dyslexia.  She informed us that there were proven techniques that could be used to help her.  Soon after enrolling her into SAIL Academy, we started to see progress.  The difference between public school and what she was learning at SAIL Academy cannot easily be put into words, other than to say that our daughter has come to life!  She went from being barely able to read a sentence to thoroughly enjoying reading mysteries, writing her own daily journal, and doing beyond well with her math skills.  I just can't say enough about Shellie and the SensaLearn program!"
