Academic Courses and Requirements
Academic integrity, a challenging curriculum, and a faculty dedicated to cultivating a passion for knowledge are integral components of a Wayland education.
Small classes allow teachers to interact with students as individuals, hone their strengths, and prepare them to excel in college.
Wayland's faculty work closely with students in every aspect of campus life. Most faculty members live on campus and all of them have office hours and frequently host study sessions to supplement the classroom experience.
