College prep boarding schools rely heavily on the power of their distinguished alumni. Alumni have connections to their schools that last a lifetime. For them, college prep boarding schools are more than just educational institutions — they’re home.
Wasatch Academy likewise relies on all of our distinguished alumni. We are thrilled when they succeed and proud of each graduate’s accomplishments in life, in career and in the community. Beyond this, alumni have the ability to help their alma mater in many ways.
Wasatch Academy is a family, plain and simple. Our students leave campus with life-long connections to their fellow graduates. As students progress in life, these connections can help them establish careers and organize widespread initiatives for good. They have an instant global network available to them when they need it.
Beyond benefitting graduated students, our alumni network helps current students achieve their goals. When students express interest in a particular field of study, we can connect them with Wasatch Academy alumni to mentor and aid them in their progress.
College prep boarding schools depend on donations and fundraising to provide quality education and hands-on experience to their students. At Wasatch Academy, our alumni are our best fundraisers because they know first-hand what a Wasatch Academy education means for students. Donors can trust alumni because they know exactly what it is like to live and study at our school.
Because of their firsthand experience, alumni are some of our greatest resources for new ideas. They help us understand what programs are working best and what new programs we could create to take our students to the next level.
Arguably the strongest power of Wasatch Academy’s alumni is the example they set for current students. Each student can look at a graduate and see his or her own potential. Through their example, alumni show students that education can and will make a difference for their future.
