     Blue Peak High School is Tooele County School District’s only alternative high school. Blue Peak High school is a fully accredited high school located within the Tooele Community Learning Center campus. Blue Peak is a closed enrollment school requiring a referral from a student’s home high school and then approval from the district’s Case Management Team. Enrollment varies between eighty and one hundred students depending on the time of year. Students may be referred to Blue Peak because of attendance or academic issues, or they may just have a preference for the small more personal environment which the school affords.


     All students who attend Blue Peak High School can expect smaller class sizes, high expectations for academic achievement, and a personal mentoring relationship with the faculty and staff.  Our goal is to help students get back on track for graduation.  Students are allowed to go back to their home high school once they have made up their missing credits. However, most students stay at Blue Peak and are able to graduate.   Students who wish to go back to their home high school must be referred by their counselor and principal and then receive approval from the district’s Case Management Team.   


The principal at the CLC and Blue Peak High School is Mr. Kendall Topham,  Assistant Principal is Mr. Charles Mohler.
