Our Mission

Wayland Academy prepares each student for college and beyond through a liberal arts curriculum and campus programs devoted to the pursuit of knowledge and the development of character.

Philosophy

Since 1855, Wayland Academy has been dedicated solely to the education of young people. The curriculum of the Academy, seen in its broadest sense, encompasses time-tested activities that prepare students to be successful beyond their high school years and to lead meaningful lives. The four Corinthian pillars of Wayland Hall symbolize the four pillars of a Wayland education: Scholarship, Faith, Health, and Service. The Academy recognizes these components as essential to developing well-rounded individuals. 

Scholarship

The first pillar grounds the student in traditional college preparation in English, Mathematics, Science, Social Science, History, Modern and Classical Languages, and the Fine Arts.

Faith

The second pillar reinforces the ethical, moral, and spiritual awareness of students in their daily lives. Chapel is held every Friday and is a non-denominational service with community building as its core purpose. 

Health

The third pillar strengthens the emotional and physical well being of students through participation on athletic teams or in the Alternate Activities Program (AAP) and through policies designed to encourage healthy lifestyles.

Service

The fourth pillar upholds our belief in the importance of student awareness of social obligations, both in our community and in the world.
