Historic Scott School Community Center

Historic Scott School

Historic Scott School has a long history of serving our community and South Salt Lake is proud to be home to the oldest continuously operating school in the state of Utah. This charming campus was the founding site of Granite High School, gradually growing and changing to become home to another Promise SSL center, and a community center for the arts. 

In addition to high school classes, the Pioneer Craft House organization began teaching community classes here in 1947 and the buildings are often referred to by that name. In 2009, the city acquired the property from Granite School District with the support from Salt Lake County ZAP funds. Historic Scott School Community Center now hosts several important community services and partners for residents and the public.

Promise SSL

Promise SSL offers afterschool and summer programs for residents at Historic Scott School. Excellent program offerings for teens, including classes in arts and academics.

Arts Council

The South Salt Lake Arts Council provides a wide variety of art classes inside the Center. All classes are low-cost or free to residents and offer opportunities for all ages to participate in the arts through classes hosted by local artists.
