Be a Student Leader
Wasatch Academy students are encouraged to take part in leadership, whether they participate directly in student body leadership, clubs, or extracurricular activities. Exercising those leadership muscles is important in preparing students for university, for careers, and for life.
Student council acts as a robust part of student life on campus. The elected peer leaders serve their school and community by contributing to many aspects of student life, including student activities and services, academics, residential life, athletics, and the student handbook and honor code. They are role models that set an example for other students by both their words and actions.
Class officers serve as liaisons between their classmates and the rest of the student body. The process works in a similar manner to other schools’ programs. At the beginning of the school year, students elect peers to spearhead class fundraising, give voice to their vision, and help coordinate special events for students. These events include Junior Prom, class trips, parties, interclass challenges, and more.
Ambassadors are chosen based on their academic and personal achievements. Each ambassador represents a different part of our diverse school and plays a significant role in our guests’ on-campus experiences.
Each dorm elects a student leader who helps the dorm parent lead the dorm and ensures that students adhere to dorm rules on a day-to-day basis. The role of a dorm prefect is similar to that of a residential advisor in college, though responsibility for more serious matters falls to the dorm parent.
The Sustainability Council consists of nine faculty members and nine student members. The council meets every other Tuesday to discuss matters related to the sustainability program, including fundraising for projects and initiatives.
