Summer isn’t just a time for exploring the adventures that await you outdoors (although that’s certainly a perk). At Wasatch Academy, students can use the summer months to elevate their learning or regain lost ground. Our summer programs don’t rely on temporary staff — all of our students who attend our summer program are taught by our full-time faculty with curricula that mirrors a regular semester. Plus the benefits of Utah’s amazing outdoor recreation!
What does the academic summer program at Wasatch Academy look like? Students participate in interactive learning from 9:00am to 3:00pm in small classrooms that rely on a personalized teaching approach from each and every faculty member. Students can enroll in academic courses and earn up to three full semester credits at the end of the six-week program.
The best part of attending Wasatch Academy during the summer? The extracurricular activities in the afternoon. Take the rest of the afternoon off after classes and enjoy world-class rock climbing a mere 15 minutes away, take up western horseback riding in our equestrian center, or dozens of other activities.
Looking for an activity that really embraces the summer season? Participate in our slip-n-slide kick ball, tie dye activities, impromptu dance parties or trips to the pool. When the weekend rolls around, enjoy camping in any one of Utah’s famous national parks, trips to local rodeos or fairs, amusements parks, shopping and other summer-infused recreational events.
Want to get a taste of what boarding school is like before fully committing? Enjoy our three week Summer Dash program at Wasatch Academy. Participate in a variety of courses and activities, create a schedule of classes fine-tuned to your interests and needs and most importantly, try new things while honing existing passions and skills. The Summer Dash is a great way to experience everything that Wasatch Academy has to offer before enrolling as a full-time student.
