A home away from home
Where else can one live with classmates from about 40 countries and 35 states? Or be immersed in a community where everyone is accepted—and respected—for who they are? Everyone fits in at Wasatch Academy.
This is boarding school life at its best. Make lifetime friends. Be part of an inclusive, global community that embraces different perspectives and has awesome full-time dorm parents who care as if students are their own. Dorm parents regularly teach about making safe, wise decisions, staying healthy, and building good character. At Wasatch Academy, we care about building the whole student.
Wasatch Academy’s rural Utah location makes it one of the safest places in the United States for students to get an exceptional education, grow into themselves, and find a tight-knit community.
Come and make friends for a lifetime.
Building Community and Character
One component of our residential life culture is that dorm parents lead students in a weekly dorm curriculum focused on character and social/emotional development. We focus on teaching responsibility, accountability, safety, empowerment, diversity, community, and respect. All curriculum lessons are linked to at least one value. In addition, we teach formalized lessons, but also teach informally all day long. Conflict resolution is a big area for dorm parents to teach, opportunities come up when students are sharing common spaces. This is also a major skill needed for life.
