Student Body Leadership Applications are Open! Is your student interested in being a part of the Student Body Leadership (SBL) Team? Participating in SBL allows students to represent fellow Williamsburg Learning students, plan online and in-person activities, and more! To participate, students must commit to attending a weekly SBL class on Thursday at 1:00 PM and actively participate in one of the five groups that manage the Williamsburg activities (e.g., Inspiration Hour, Thursday Night Live, Discord/Special Online Evening Events, Burger Meets, and Student Outreach).

Students must also:

  • Have a 3.0 GPA or higher while maintaining an 80% or above in all classes.
  • Be a Williamsburg High School Student next Fall (Juniors and Seniors will be given priority).
  • Have been a student at WA/LAU/WAC for at least 1 year (2 semesters).
  • Be able to devote 2 or more hours per week to this position. 

If your student would like to participate in the 2024-25 SBL, have them fill out this application by April 26.

New School Phone Number: To make it easier for you to reach our Enrollment and Customer Support teams, we have a new, dedicated school phone number: 303-285-0787. You can also find this new number on our website.

Spring Celebration (in-person): Join us for an adventure-filled evening at Springs Adventure Park in Colorado Springs on Friday, April 26 from 4-7 PM MT. This celebration will feature three hours of jump time, obstacle courses, free food, video games, and more! To make things even better, the entire facility has been reserved exclusively for our school. WAC students attend free, plus, we’ve reserved additional space for a limited number of guests on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once we’ve reached our cap, guests can attend for an additional fee. Each attendee must complete both the Springs Adventure Park and WAC Waiver, available here, before the event. For registration and further information, please visit our Spring Celebration web page.

Summit Leadership Adventure: Summit Journeys and Leadership Academy of Utah (LAU) have partnered together to host the Summit Leadership Adventure course from June 3-7. This course is open to the public, meaning that all Williamsburg Learning students, friends, and family members currently in grades 9-12 are invited to register! The cost for the session is $785 and payment is required at registration. This price includes food, lodging, and all other accommodations and activities. Students who are self-pay and are wanting to register can do so through our Self-Pay Registration form. LAU students can still register without cost to parents by emailing the LAU Registrar. For further information, please visit our Summit Leadership Adventure webpage.

Learning Brave Teen Retreat and Tours: WAC’s Leadership mentor, Ross Gilbert, and his wife Skyler, host teen-focused tours all around the world! This year, Ross and Skyler are hosting Teen Retreats in Utah (June 3-7), Austria and Germany (July 22-30), and Italy (October 11-19). These events function as wonderful opportunities for Williamsburg students to connect with the outdoors and celebrate their hard work together. For more information on registration, prices, and accommodations, please visit the Upcoming Tours webpage on the Learning Brave website.

Problem-Solving Olympiad: Does your student enjoy playing games, testing their unique skills, and working as a team in fun competitions?
