In addition to the student application, we require three teacher recommendations. One from your English teacher, math teacher, and a personal recommendation (could be a guidance counselor, principal, coach, etc.). Please have your current school send an official transcript. For students applying to 9th grade, only an 8th grade transcript is required. Applicants for 10th-12th grade should provide a complete transcript for all high school years completed. You can find a transcript release form here.
We strongly encourage all prospective students and parent/guardians to visit our campus, see for yourselves the beautiful mountain setting, feel the warmth and strength of our community as you meet our students and faculty, and observe our forward thinking academics in action. This is the best way to determine if attending Wasatch Academy is a good fit. Please contact the Admission Office to schedule your campus visit and interview. If you are unable to visit our campus in person, we can arrange for a Skype interview once we have received your completed application.
For all interviewing students (either in person or via Skype) we request that prior to your interview you thoroughly read our Student Handbook to become familiar with our policies and procedures. Please prepare questions you have about the handbook to ask during your interview.

The cost for the GeoBlue insurance is $124 a month. It needs to be purchased for the student before they arrive in Utah so they have insurance for their ride to campus and at all times while on campus. Please see the link below to purchase GeoBlue insurance.
Wasatch Academy encourages its international students to purchase GeoBlue insurance as it is billable by local doctors and hospitals. Otherwise a parent/student must pay for all medical care in cash and be reimbursed for it in their home country, according to their own insurance plan.
Traveler’s insurance is not sufficient for students, and many international insurance companies do not cover providers in our local area. This often means students have to pay all expenses at the time of the visit, including travel costs, and seek reimbursement on their own.
We encourage all of our students to purchase a full year of insurance and continue the insurance year to year while enrolled at WA so they have only one 6 months pre-existing clause, which will cover only $250 in the first 6 months for a medical problem existing before the student arrives at Wasatch Academy. This plan also offers the student a small amount of insurance coverage ($1000 lifetime) in their home country if they don’t have another insurance policy there.
We also recommend that all regular medical and dental exams and immunizations be completed at home because most international insurances do not cover these types of services.
Truly appreciating everything that Wasatch Academy offers requires a visit to our gorgeous campus. Campus tours are available by appointment every day of the week, and we encourage students considering Wasatch Academy to attend and observe classes, and to join the student body for meals or extracurricular activities.
A trip to Mt. Pleasant, Utah, also provides an opportunity to ski at Utah’s world-class resorts or visit one of the half-dozen nearby national parks. In the surrounding Sanpete valley, visitors can golf, camp, hike, rock climb, mountain bike and sight-see.
