The Winter Sports School in Park City provides an educational opportunity that is unparalleled anywhere in the world. Our schedule allows student-athletes to focus their attention on academics when they are in school and on their chosen sport when the season is underway.

The academic and athletic success of the Winter Sports School community over the past twenty-five years is remarkable. Our graduates have gone on to win Olympic, World Cup, National, Collegiate, and Junior titles in multiple sports. While these athletic results are impressive, we want to be clear that our core purpose is to ensure that our graduates are prepared to succeed at the college or university of their choice. The feedback we receive from our alumni and top institutions of higher learning in the country proves that we consistently deliver against that goal.

If you are driven to succeed in academics and in winter athletics, have the energy to pursue both to the absolute best of your ability, and like to have fun doing it, we encourage you to apply to our program. There is no better secondary school in the United States – – perhaps the world – – for unique students like yourself to prepare for upward steps in education, athletics, and life.

Admissions & Enrollment FAQs


Admissions for the 2024 school year are closed. The Utah Resident Application for the 2025 school year will open in August of 2024. WSS enrolls up to 30 students per grade level depending upon available spaces, and reserves the right to limit or expand grade levels to accommodate special circumstances.

We have also launched the Elite Athlete Flex, a special program within the regular WSS academic program. This Elite Athlete Flex seeks to meet the unique and often very individual needs of our student-athletes who have achieved a level of success in their chosen sport that demands much more travel, training, and competition year-round, including long stretches during our condensed academic calendar at WSS.

The open enrollment application periods for the 2025 school year are as follows:

ENROLLMENT PERIOD; #1: August 19th through September 19th, 2024
ENROLLMENT PERIOD; #2: September 20th through December 5th, 2024
ENROLLMENT PERIOD; #3: December 5th through February 13th, 2025
ENROLLMENT PERIOD; #4: February 14th through April 30th, 2025

    Our admissions policy for non-Utah residents is strictly need-blind, and our financial aid policy is 100% grant based, sharing the “no loans” policy recently adopted by some of the top tier colleges and universities in the United States. Financial aid grants are made possible by fundraising activities and private donations to the school.

    Financial aid grants are eligible for partial tuition only, as non-Utah resident students are required to be 100% self-funded. No financial aid grant for a prospective non-Utah resident may result in a tuition threshold which falls below Utah State requirements or which leads to a situation in which the education of a non-Utah resident becomes subsidized by Utah tax dollars.

    Any student wishing to apply for financial aid should submit a completed form with their application packet.


    2024 Tuition for newly enrolled Non-Utah Resident students is $17,850.

    Additionally, required fees in 2023 are $280 for 9th through 11th-grade students and $455 for 12th-grade students.

    Student fees for the 2024 school year will be posted once approved.

    Required and optional fees for each new year are determined in the fall and will be posted, along with a payment link,  below on this page by January 15 of each year.

    The Winter Sports School is not a boarding facility. All non-Utah resident students are responsible for securing their own living accommodations.


    To apply to our program, please complete the following steps in the application process:

    1. Complete both the student and parent sections of the Non-Utah Resident Application for Admission form (see link to the form below)
    2. An official school transcript for grades 6-present year (please include an explanation for any grades lower than C-)
    3. A letter of recommendation from a coach or sport club director
    4. A letter of recommendation from a teacher of your choice.

    Supporting materials can be scanned and e-mailed to us at admissions@wintersportsschool.org  or sent via U.S. Mail to The Winter Sports School in Park City, 4251 Shadow Mountain Drive, Park City, UT  84098.
