At Wasatch Academy, learning is an experience. Our specialized style of project-based learning is creative but intensive and focuses on helping every student reach their highest potential in any given field. Wasatch Academy students study topics in-depth, exploring the intersection of ideas and disciplines. Along the way, students master core academic content and make valuable observations about how they learn. Students complete course requirements with a deep content understanding and personal ownership of their learning. They also gain respect for the environment and attain a powerful awareness of how communities are interconnected.

Wasatch Academy knows how to appreciate the great outdoors. Our location in central Utah gives Wasatch Academy a gateway to outdoor adventuring. Hiking, climbing, skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, camping...and so much more!

"My experience outside the classroom surrounded by the incredible beauty of Utah pushed me to new heights and allowed me to learn more about who I am.” — Tenzin, India
When it comes to athletics, we are all in! Being on a team teaches students much more than the basic fundamentals of how to kick a ball, swing a racket, or sink a basketball. While skill development and being physically fit are emphasized, much more is learned: how to be a team player, how to cooperate, and how to develop a healthy approach to competition.
Many of Wasatch Academy’s sports teams are top ranked within their leagues. It’s why we believe our athletic program is among the best in the US.
Students come to Wasatch Academy young and inexperienced, with a variety of backgrounds and differences. They are guided by hands that have forged the path before them. They are encouraged to be something more. Students discover their uniqueness.
We become something greater, something spectacular, ready to make our mark in the world. We are Wasatch Academy!
