SPORTS AND ARTS
The school’s mountainous location is ideal for opportunities like Alpine and Nordic skiing. The school offers both regular-level competition teams and elite national traveling squads.
Wasatch offers unique arts courses such as acting and comedy, hip-hop dance, and Photoshop for arts.
