    Wasatch Academy is a richly diverse community with students from over 30 nations and noted as one of the top boarding schools in the United States. With small class sizes, full-time dorm parents, and a project-based education approach, students can elevate their knowledge into a lifelong pursuit of learning.

    At an intersection of personal discovery and unparalleled education, we welcome you to explore all Wasatch Academy has to offer and learn more about what makes us the birthplace for the leaders of tomorrow.

    An innovator in project-based learning, our specialized curriculum and academic philosophy prepares students grades 7-12 to transform society as engaged citizens and leaders in a complex world. And our holistic approach to academics, the arts, athletics, and tailored Learning Services for Generation Z is unmatched.

    Beyond the classroom, students access countless avenues to explore new interests, connect with others, and build community in ways that both support and challenge them. Our beautiful 35-acre campus is within a six-hour drive of seven national monuments, six national forests, five national parks, 14 world-class ski resorts, and 43 state parks.

    Wasatch Academy provides a nurturing community that empowers young men and women to develop academically, socially, emotionally, physically, and morally, preparing them for college and the challenges of living in the global society.

    • Respect for the individual: We strive to make sure each student is challenged appropriately while preserving personal dignity and a culture of kindness.
    • Ownership: Ownership means accountability. We strive for faculty, staff, and students to feel responsible for developing a positive learning climate, inspiring instruction, ethical commitment, and individual creativity.
    • Community: The Wasatch Academy community prizes its status as a diverse, dynamic, global community.
    • Innovation: Wasatch Academy strives to lead the way in innovations that strengthen the educational/residential approach to preparing students for higher education and good citizenship.
    • Health and Safety: We provide a safe and healthy environment and embed a lifelong safety and health ethic in faculty and students.

    In preparing its students to be citizens of the global community in the 21st century, Wasatch Academy recognizes the importance of providing an inclusive and equitable learning environment that encourages and supports the affirmation of the fundamental dignity of each individual. We believe our community must respect the diversity found in today’s global society, including differences in culture, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, learning styles, physical ability, and socioeconomic status. Wasatch Academy strives to embody this belief in the composition of our faculty, staff, and Board of Trustees. Our commitment to nurturing a diverse community of learners is essential to fulfilling the Wasatch Academy mission.
