Wayland's Academic Departments provide students with world-class preparation for college and life
beyond the classroom.
The Academy offers courses on three levels of instruction: Advanced Placement (AP)
, Honors (H), and College Preparatory (CP). Placement into one of these levels will be determined by various evaluative criteria, including previous grades, standardized test results, and teacher recommendations, as well as parent and student expectations and desires. At the Advanced Placement level, students enroll only through invitation of the instructor and Department. Wayland also participates in the University of Minnesota’s College in the Schools
program (CIS). Enrollment in a CIS course is through invitation of the instructor, and there is an additional tuition charge. The Academy reserves the right to make professional assessments and decisions about student placement in one of these three academic levels.
