Q

Do you require SSAT, TOEFL, or any other testing as a part of the application?

We do not require the SSAT or TOEFL as a part of our application.

If you have these test scores and would like to submit them we will be happy to include them in your application.

1. Create an Online Application Account

   To create an Online Application Account, click here . Once you have created your account, you will be able to save the different parts of your application and return later. To submit an application, you will need to:

      • Complete the student questionnaire, which includes an essay and short-answer questions. This must be filled-out by the student.
      • Complete and submit the parent questionnaire.
      • An application fee of $100 ($200 for international applicants) is required at the time of submission.

2. Send Your Recommendations and Transcripts

   In addition to the student application, we require three teacher recommendations. One from your English teacher, math teacher, and a personal recommendation (could be a guidance counselor, principal, coach, etc.).  Please have your current school send an official transcript. For students applying to 9th grade, only an 8th grade transcript is required. Applicants for 10th-12th grade should provide a complete transcript for all high school years completed. You can find a transcript release form here.

3. Visit Campus and Interview

   We strongly encourage all prospective students and parent/guardians to visit our campus to see for yourselves the beautiful mountain setting, feel the warmth and strength of our community as you meet our students and faculty, and observe our forward thinking academics in action. This is the best way for both you, and us, to determine if this is a good fit. Please contact the Admission Office at 435-462-1400 or email us at admissions@wasatchacademy.org to schedule a campus visit and interview. Our Visit Our Campus tab has helpful travel information. If you are unable to visit our campus in person, we can arrange for a Skype interview once we have received your completed application.

   For all interviewing students (either in person or via Skype) we request that prior to your interview you thoroughly read our Student Handbook to become familiar with our policies and procedures. Please prepare questions you have about the handbook to ask during your interview.
