The Northern Utah Academy for Math Engineering and Science (NUAMES) is a grades ten through twelve public charter high school started in 2004 that specializes in preparing high school students for an early transition into a university baccalaureate program in fields related to math, engineering or science. The Principal is Alan Stokes, the Vice Principal is Dave Dau and Debbie Hefner is the director of business operations. The curriculum focuses on math, engineering, and science. Students who have attended NUAMES for a full year and meet Weber State's admission requirements receive a scholarship to attend the university while they are also completing their high school diploma. Many of students have earned their associate's degree by the time they graduate. The NUAMES campus is on the Weber State University Davis campus in Layton, Utah.
The Utah State Office of Education gave NUAMES the Closing the Achievement Gap Award in 2010. This award is given to students who make adequate yearly progress in all subjects, and who reduce the achievement gap between different groups of students by at least 50%.
