    The purpose of the interview is to get to know the student and get an idea of how they might be involved in our community. It is a conversation between the applicant and admission representative. While the applicant will certainly be asked questions regarding their schooling, extracurricular activities and interests, it is also a great time for the applicant to ask any questions they have about the school.

    Wayland’s Admission Committee reviews the entire application when making decisions. However, the most important factor is trying to determine best fit for both the student and Wayland Academy.

Additionally, Wayland wants students who wish to get involved in and contribute to the school community.
