In 2004, the Ken Garff Family saw the need to help the Utah Education System. Their love for education is what the Success in Education Foundation is built around. They created Success in Education, which has since become its own 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and thus the Keys to Success program.


Originally in 48 high schools across the Wasatch front, Keys to Success has grown immensely in the past two decades and is now open to middle schools, high schools, and higher education institutions across the state of Utah. Along with this expansion, the program has evolved with the development of a mobile app along with the introduction of prizes and incentives to reward students for their steps towards college and career readiness.


In 2021, the Keys to Success adult portal was launched to support adults in their own personal paths towards college and career readiness.
