WANDER OFF THE PATH
Wasatch Academy’s location is so close to 6 incredible National Parks that we thought it would be only fitting to invite you to join us on a National Park tour! Not only are the National Parks around Wasatch Academy beautiful, but we know a thing or two about our own backyard. Expect a few off-the-beaten-trail excursions to some amazing surprise sites.
