Wasatch Academy

About Us

Nestled in the heart of Utah, Wasatch Academy’s 30-acre campus sits under sprawling blue skies and orange-hued mountains, in close proximity to six national parks. When you think of where your student might attend boarding school in the U.S., central Utah probably doesn’t top your list. And we’re not for everyone.

But Wasatch Academy offers four key features that no other school in the U.S. can match—and for our students, that makes all the difference.

For starters, our Schools Attuned program ensures that Wasatch Academy teachers know how to closely observe how your child learns, and then adjust their lessons and methods accordingly. An attuned school leads to a higher-achieving student.

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 her classroom work.

Wasatch Academy’s global campus hosts students from more than 35 countries and 22 states. What better way to prepare for 21st-century global realities 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 community that empowers young men and women to find their own way.
