It’s difficult to sum up Wasatch Academy’s academic philosophy in a couple of paragraphs; however, if we had to describe it in a few words or less, we might use phrases such as individualized attention, project-based learning models and small class sizes with personalized lesson plans. We’re dedicated to developing critical thinking, communication (written, spoken and digital), collaboration, creativity and innovation. While our students learn the content of each course they take, our teachers emphasize learning the skills named above as they are vital to success.

Individualized, Personalized Academic Plans

A project based learning environment is the cornerstone of Wasatch Academy’s academic approach. By providing students with ample opportunities to take control of their education, we equip students with true empowerment that permeates every aspect of their lives. At Wasatch Academy, we don’t believe in the “sage on a stage” approach; on the contrary, our students learn in a very hands-on and team-oriented environment. Our teachers are “guides by the side.”
