    One of the best things that have ever happened to me was getting the opportunity to attend Wasatch Academy! I get to meet and make friends with people from all around the world, form 1-on-1 bonds with my teachers and staff and get all the support I need to graduate high school and much beyond that.

    Wasatch Academy is very centered around the students and their potential. Every student receives personalized help and guidance with their classes and personal pursuits. Would 100% recommend!
    I had so many opportunities at WA but I definitely had many issues with the school. It is not LGBTQ+ friendly. We were not allowed to have a LGBTQ+ club there on the pretense that “the school didn’t have clubs” which was untrue. There weren’t many clubs but there were a few. Many of the teachers were not supportive of the community too. This was the same with the administration. The school was also horrible at handling sexism an sexual adult often opting to brush it under the rug rather than actually do anything. This is pretty common at most schools in America but the issue here is that WA is a boarding school. You LIVE there so this poor behavior extended to your whole life, not just school.
