Located in Layton, UT

Fernwood Academy is a residential boarding school exclusively for young women ages 13 – 18.  Fernwood operates year-round on a 5-term academic calendar in which students can earn a full quarter credit for each class.


Our goal is to provide students with a college preparatory curriculum in a welcoming, personalized school setting. 


We believe in the Fernwood family where students, staff, and parents back home work together to create a path to academic excellence.  Recent ACT scores of Fernwood students show that our students are 74% more academically prepared for college level success than other students in the state.


Our faculty is licensed, highly trained, and deeply motivated to help each student gain the knowledge and understanding to achieve great levels of success.


We offer an exceptional learning environment remarkable in its diversity and purposeful intention of helping every student learn and love to learn.


We invite you to learn more about our academic approach and how Fernwood Academy might be the right choice for your daughter.
