Innovators aren’t always born — sometimes they are made. At Wasatch Academy, we recognize that creativity and play are important aspects of learning during the teenage years in high school, which is why we’ve structured a learning model that fosters a sense of independence and innovation.
College prep boarding schools are about so much more than an impressive SAT score or perfect attendance (although that’s certainly a plus); they’re also about helping students recognize and explore their individuality. Here’s how the Wasatch Academy personalized learning style helps foster a higher level of innovation and creativity in students across the board.
Teachers Guide Students to Find Their Creative and Academic Flow
An essential aspect of instilling innovation in students results from creative freedom. Wasatch Academy provides the framework and foundational tools for students to explore — whether that’s through our state-of-the-art recording studio, indoor and outdoor equestrian practice areas, on-campus photography darkroom or the numerous hiking trails surrounding the 30-acre campus, as examples. College prep boarding schools that foster this type of culture and exploration effectively allow students to immerse themselves in their passion — and become the next great innovators of their generation.
The Cultivation of a Unique Campus
As you’ve probably gathered, Wasatch Academy is uniquely different from other college prep boarding schools. Our diverse campus is home to students from around the globe who are all uniquely different. Instead of creating a culture of conformity, one of our highest priorities is to embrace this unique sense of diversity. The cultural differences that each and every student brings to our school inspires a sense of innovation across the Wasatch Academy campus — resulting in a multicultural fusion of ideas, thinking patterns and personal identity.
The most successful college prep boarding schools are those that not only embrace student differences and nuances, but welcome them. At Wasatch Academy, our personalized teaching methods single-handedly contribute to a new generation of innovative thinkers, explorers and dreamers.
