Students in Davis County can explore careers while earning high school credit at the new Davis School District Catalyst Center that opened in January. The Davis School District bought the office building at 1265 Sportsplex Drive in Kaysville two years ago and had it remodeled into a state-of-the-art facility. They also purchased 3.5 acres of land adjacent to the building for future expansion.
“We foster creativity, innovation, entrepreneurship and collaboration,” said Principal Brian Hunt. “We offer the best world class educational experience. This building is designed for our unique instructional model.”
Catalyst works hand-in-hand with industry partners and instructors who have a background in the industry.
The Center offers nine programs:
• Audio & Video Production
• Business, Marketing & Entrepreneurship
• Culinary Arts
• Game Development/Adv. Programming
• Graphic Design
• Medical Assisting
• Pharmacy Technician
• Unmanned Systems
“The better students get to know themselves the better decisions they’ll make,” said Hunt. “We want students to find their passion and grow that passion.” λ
