Every Wasatch student is encouraged and have opportunities to take part in leadership, whether they participate directly in student body leadership or within their favorite clubs and activities. It’s a part of our student leadership curriculum. Exercising those leadership muscles is important in preparing students for university, career, and life, and providing them experience for when they step out into the real world.

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’s student council is a focal point of student life on campus. The elected peer leaders at Wasatch Academy don’t simply serve their school and community—they help plan, coordinate, and contribute to a variety of student activities, academics, service, residential life, and athletics events.

As part of Wasatch Academy’s student leadership program, our student council members contribute to the culture of Wasatch Academy by organizing and creating monthly and weekly activities, overseeing student leadership 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.

Become a Class Officer

At Wasatch Academy, we also allow our students to become involved as class officers. Our class officers serve as liaisons between their classmates and the entire student body. The process works in a similar manner to other schools’ programs. At the beginning of the school year, students elect peers to spearhead class fundraising and give voice to the vision and help coordinate special events for students. These events include:

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

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 the student council to share and expand upon ideas, the calendar of events, and other collaborative activities.

 

Dorm Prefects

Each dorm elects as prefect 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. A dorm prefect is a little bit like a residential advisor in college, but responsibility for more serious matters falls to the dorm parent over the dorm prefect. Becoming a dorm prefect provides one more opportunity for students to participate in our student leadership curriculum.

 

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, which means that being a Student Ambassador is a high achievement.

 

Celebrating Community Through Student Contributions

Our admissions process wouldn’t be what it is without our Student Ambassadors. These representatives are chosen based on their academic and personal achievements, which means that being a Student Ambassador is a high achievement.

Each one of our ambassadors represents a different part of our diverse school while playing a significant part in our guests’ on-campus experiences, especially when parents and prospective students visit the school. 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. There is a Head Ambassador and a leader for each class, making for many leadership opportunities.
