Adam Aldous, Waterford Class of '10 captures a bird's-eye view of the Waterford School campus on a beautiful fall day.
At the Waterford School, physical facilities do more than simply keep students safe and warm. They are a crucial educational tool, a reflection of our culture and values, and an integral part of our long-term mission. The integrated campus nestled at the base of the Wasatch Mountains is not only inspiring, but is capable of supporting Waterford's faculty, students and curriculum. We believe it is impossible to teach science effectively without labs and classrooms equipped with the right technology; or develop a strong music program without appropriate performance venues and practice facilities. As a result, Waterford's remarkable campus embraces and strengthens the link between well-designed facilities and academic excellence.

The campus is currently comprised of 41 acres and 10 buildings totaling 250,000 square feet, and can be found in Sandy, UT at the base of the Wasatch Mountains. With six world class ski resorts within 30 minutes, five National Parks in the state, a booming economy, and innovative higher education resources, the Wasatch Front is an ideal, inspiring and energetic location to foster excellence in effort and education.
