Established in 1875, Wasatch Academy is an award-winning, best-of-class, private college preparatory boarding high school. We pride ourselves in offering students unparalleled individual attention in a supportive culture where everyone is treated with respect, dignity, and acceptance.

At Wasatch Academy, every student fits in and discovers their passions and sense of purpose. They push themselves academically, physically, socially, and morally. Our students learn they can be smart as well as good, caring people. We prepare our students for university, a career, and a meaningful life.

We are proud to be a highly diverse private college preparatory boarding school with approximately 340 students, 80% of which are boarding students, and 40% of which are from over 40 different countries around the world. Embracing that diversity is a natural part of our culture.

Wasatch Academy offers unmatched individualized attention in our education, from our classrooms to our advisory programs, adapting education styles to suit each student’s individual needs. Our Wasatch faculty and staff take pride in our personal attention to every student that joins our community and in how we help them to meet their personal goals academically, physically, socially, and morally.

Surrounded by mountain views, this beautiful Utah boarding school has cultivated a culture of dignity, respect, and acceptance in which students from all different backgrounds, experiences, beliefs, and personalities find genuine community and life-long friendships. At Wasatch, we encourage and cultivate this atmosphere of warm acceptance. Wasatch is not only an excellent college prep boarding school to prepare academically for a great college and career, it’s also a place where students are encouraged to live a meaningful life in a community with each other.
