The Three Pillars of Alliance House

An individual with mental illness can have difficulties completing his or her education within mainstream education systems, which is why Alliance House helps its members complete various levels of education, from a high school diploma to a college degree. For high school education, Alliance House, in partnership with Horizonte School, an alternative high school education program of the Salt Lake City School District, provides classes to members to help them complete their high school degree. An Alliance House high school graduation event is celebrated spring. For members who wish to complete college courses and work toward a college degree, Alliance House provides

mentoring and tutoring to its members in a supportive environment to give each member the best opportunity to achieve their higher education goals.
