Embrace Diversity. Practice Dignity.

We believe that diversity and dignity go hand-in-hand; diversity cannot flourish without dignity and respect. At Wasatch Academy, we welcome students from all over the world and many different places within the United States. As a result, our students learn first-hand what it means to not only encounter people from different cultures, but to exist harmoniously with them.

For students to thrive, they need adults who respect the dignity of every student and appreciate the unique learning style and personality of every student. Our pledge to nurture a diverse community of learners is essential to the fulfillment of our mission.

We channel our resources to attract students from many different backgrounds, welcoming students from nearly 40 countries around the world to prepare students for success in the 21st century.

 

Promoting Acceptance on Every Level

We believe that students deserve to be accepted, regardless of background, academic experience or beliefs. At Wasatch Academy, we’re devoted to providing an environment of acceptance on every level, whether it be cultural, socioeconomic, academic or personal.

 

Finding the Right Learning Experience

Our academic mission is to provide every student who crosses the threshold of Wasatch Academy with a solid, personalized education that emphasizes his or her passions and strengths. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to academics and education; on the contrary, our unparalleled, individualized learning approach for students enables them to thrive.

Each and every student at Wasatch Academy is different, unique and capable of achieving great things — with the right learning experience and environment.

 

Building Community Through Service

Learning extends beyond the classroom. We work with the local community to provide opportunities for service to expose our students to the value of service.

At Wasatch Academy, we embrace an unparalleled joy of discovery and strive to be perpetually inspired by both those around us and the beautiful, surrounding Utah landscape of Mt. Pleasant. Find your place, find your passion and excel academically — it’s all possible at Wasatch Academy.
