School Notes

The Four Cornerstones of a Wasatch Academy education equip our graduates with the tools to become innovators and leaders in the 21st century.

  • For starters, our Schools Attuned program ensures Wasatch Academy teachers closely observe how your child learns and then adjust their lessons and methods accordingly. All teachers are trained in the program's philosophies and strategies to help each student reach their highest potential.
  • Next, our exceptional outdoor program builds character, leadership skills, and feeds our students' sense of adventure. At Wasatch Academy, your student’s outdoor experience matches the richness of their classroom work and provides a unique college preparatory education.
  • Wasatch Academy’s co-ed global campus hosts students from more than 35 countries and 25 states. What better way to prepare for a "flat world" than to learn alongside such a diverse array of students and perspectives, languages and cultures.
  • And finally, our tight-knit community encourages every student to have a unique voice and develop at their own pace, surrounded by classmates and adults who care about them as individuals.What happens when you combine these four cornerstones? Simply put, Wasatch Academy has, since 1875, provided a nurturing boarding school community that empowers young men and women to find their own way.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
