Brigham Young High School began as the Brigham Young Academy in 1876. BYA was a secondary school that grew over the decades to include grades K - 12. In the 1890s, the school began to include a few college-level students, but BYA was always primarily a high school.

In 1903, Brigham Young Academy was dissolved, and it was replaced by two organizations: Brigham Young University High School and Brigham Young University. For the next 65 years, B.Y. High served as the heart of the BYU College of Education. Master teachers at Brigham Young High School helped generations of student teachers -- once known as "Normals" -- to start successful teaching careers.

No individual or entity derives revenue from this website.

This website does not sell advertising, does not promote or sell goods or services, and does not solicit donations or other contributions to any person or any entity involved with this website.

This website holds no funds and no property.

The purpose of this website is to serve some of the shared sentimental interests of those who formerly attended or taught at the school fondly remembered as "BY High" in Provo, Utah.

This school was officially closed in June 1968, and this website was started some 33 years later in 2001 by private individuals.

Brigham Young Academy was dissolved in 1903, but its alumni are included in this website because BYA was the predecessor organization of Brigham Young High School.

All past and present website participants of the BYA/BYH website are unpaid volunteers.

There is no organized alumni association of Brigham Young Academy, nor of Brigham Young High School.

This website is not affiliated with Brigham Young University.

Since it was founded in 1876, this school has reached the age of 144 in 2020. In 2026, we will celebrate its 150th anniversary!
