Academics, this is how we teach.
We serve. We guide. We build. We teach.
A better way
Our teachers love working with students and are committed to spending one-on-one time in small groups— each student is included in a small advisory group that meets twice a week. With full-time dorm parents, our teachers have the time to focus on what they love and do best—teaching.
At Wasatch Academy, students don’t just take notes and listen to lectures. They actively participate in their education and learn by doing. Students have the freedom to do projects that fuel their passion, learn what works best for them, and receive as much individualized attention and academic coaching as they need.
We assess each student to see where they are in their understanding of a subject, then work together to develop an individual student success plan that helps them develop a sense of self-empowerment at school and in their lives.
I am Brilee
I am Wasatch Academy
I am an introvert and not sure who I am yet. But at Wasatch Academy, I feel safe and comforted to pursue my many passions. I am a lover of all things photography and film. Living through my parent’s divorce, I would listen to music and vision different ways to bring the songs to life in photography and film. At Wasatch Academy, I have many mentors eager to guide me in my passion.
While I don’t know what I want to do with my life yet, Wasatch Academy is helping me figure it out. I am excited to be successful while making my mark on the world.
Our teachers are very mindful of the skills that are required in today’s work world. We teach our students to be thinkers, workers, and collaborators.”
