Previously on the Vanguard Academy website, Vanguard Academy stated, “[w]e are excited to highlight the value that Vanguard has added to Utah and our community by producing high performance in our students and graduating classes, all while saving the state over $2.5 million a year.” The statement about the cost savings was calculated based on inaccurate information and is incorrect. Accordingly, we hereby retract that statement and apologize for misrepresentation and any misimpression created.
