LDS High School (previously known as Salt Lake Stake Academy[1] or Latter-day Saints' High School, and sometimes spelled Latter-day Saints High School) was a secondary school in Salt Lake City, Utah operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). The school was closely associated with Latter-day Saints' University, the last vestiges of which are now Ensign College, formerly known as LDS Business College. Both trace their beginnings to the Salt Lake Stake Academy, which started in 1886. The LDS High School name was adopted in 1927.

In 1931, LDS High School was closed, leaving about 1,000 students to attend public high schools, most notably the newly built South High, which opened in the fall of that year. The closure was a late example of a process of closure of most LDS-run secondary schools in the Utah area.
