Providing Students With Ample Leadership Opportunities

Leadership is an integral aspect of every student’s life at Wasatch Academy. Each and every one of Wasatch Academy’s students are encouraged to participate on any one of our multiple student leadership opportunities on campus.

 

Wasatch Academy’s Thriving Student Council

Wasatch Academy has a thriving student council that acts as a robust part of student life on campus. The elected peer leaders at Wasatch Academy don’t simply serve their school and community — they perpetually contribute to a variety of student activities, academics, service, residential life, athletics and the student handbook and honor code.

 

Creating a Richer Culture Through Students

Wasatch Academy student council members contribute to the culture of Wasatch Academy by organizing and creating monthly and weekly activities, overseeing student lead special interest groups and giving voices to their peers. Our student council members aren’t just elected student officials — they’re role models that set an example for other students by both words and actions.

The student council positions at Wasatch Academy include:

  • Head Student
  • Vice-Head Student
  • Secretary
  • Head of Recreation
  • Head of Athletics
  • Head of International Students
  • Head Day Students
  • Head Prefect (one male and one female)
  • Head of Service (current National Honor Society President)
  • Head Honor Student (current Honor Council President)

 

Become a Class Officer

At Wasatch Academy, we also allow our students to become involved as Class officers. Our Class officers serve as a liaison between their classmates and the entire student body. The process works in a similar manner to other schools: At the beginning of the school year, students elect peers to spearhead class fund raising and special events. These events include:

  • Junior Prom
  • Class trips/parties
  • Interclass challenges
  • …and more!

 

Working Together: Class Officers and Student Council

Our Class officers work closely with the Student Council to brainstorm exciting, engaging and inspiring activities for their peers throughout the school year. In addition, our class officers also work with faculty class sponsors on designing and running events while meeting monthly with student council to share and expand upon ideas, the calendar of events and other collaborative activities.

 

Dorm Prefects

Each dorm elects a prefect who is a student leader who helps the dorm parent lead the dorm and makes sure that students do what they are supposed to do on a day-to-day basis.

 

Participate in Our Ambassador Program

Our admissions process wouldn’t be what it is without our Student Ambassadors. These representatives are chosen based on their academic and personal achievements — making our student program a privilege for all students to be involved in.

Each one of our ambassadors represents a different part of our diverse school while playing a significant part in our guests’ experience, whether it’s visiting parents or prospective Wasatch Academy students.

 

Celebrating Community Through Student Contributions

Our Student Ambassadors group allows each student to not only have a sense of pride in their school, but to learn to make further, lifelong contributions to both our community and future communities in which they become involved.
