Helping UTAH students SUCCEED

The Success in Education Foundation is a public charity founded in August 2011 to promote excellence in education, increase literacy, and help Utah students prepare for post-secondary education. The foundation is driven by a commitment to excellence in education and a desire to contribute in a meaningful way to every student's educational experience. We seek to motivate students to improve academically by working with schools to reward educational accomplishments. Our vision is to bring together students, families, teachers, administrators, and our community in achieving our goals of 90% of all school age children reading at or above grade level, and 67% of high school students obtaining academic degrees or skilled trade certificates.

with schools to reward educational accomplishments.

Road to Success
is a rewards and recognition program promoting reading proficiency in elementary schools.

The Road to Success program was developed five years ago in collaboration with the Governor's Commission on Literacy in an effort to spread the Commission's challenge to school children to read consistently.

The program currently has over 240 participating elementary schools, with approximately 165,000 students and 11,000 faculty and staff. The Success in Education Foundation's commitment is to provide a framework with tools for educators to help students, and incentives to motivate students to Read Every Day.
