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.
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.
