Welcome!

We are excited to assist you in exploring the possibilities that await you here at Wayland Academy. Our students and faculty actively live our mission daily through a liberal arts curriculum and campus programs devoted to the pursuit of knowledge and the development of character. Our curriculum, in conjunction with our diverse community, provides the optimal environment for students to thrive.

We celebrate the diversity of thought found in our student body and encourage our students to be themselves. Wayland students want to be in an environment where they’re challenged; they know they have freedom to take intellectual risks to learn, grow and develop into leaders with character.

We encourage you to visit our welcoming campus, take a student-led tour, meet our faculty, and explore all the opportunities available. We’re located in the safe and small community of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin that provides students a great amount of resources. Here, you will find a spirit of innovation, leadership, and discovery.

As you progress through your application, please feel free to contact the Office of Admission. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have about our programs and the admission procedures. We’re here to assist you in ensuring that your experience is smooth. We look forward to getting to know you while learning more about your interests and goals.

Spring 2020: Answers to Your Commonly Asked Questions

List of 3 items.

  • I wasn't able to take the SSAT/ISEE and now the tests are not available. Will you still consider my application?

    Yes. We have always prided ourselves on a holistic admissions process--one where we get to know a student through their essays, teacher recommendations, interviews, and grades. Testing is but one part of the admission process. Given the difficulty students face accessing testing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are waiving our testing requirements for Fall 2020 entry.
  • I'd really love to see campus. Can I come and take a tour?

    We wish you could! However, Wisconsin is among several U.S. states that is in what amounts to a 'shelter in place' status. The Govenor here calls it 'safer at home', and we'll listen to him--you'll be safer at home, for now. 

    When that's no longer the case, we love company! And we'd be excited to show you around our historic 55 acres and our slice of the world, where our students live and learn and connect with the world.
  • Is it too late to apply?

    It is not, and we'd welcome your application! We accept exclusively the Standard Application Online--begin your journey at wayland.academy/apply

  • COVID-19: Our Admissions Experience Continues

    In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and in order to ensure a safe and healthy learning environment for our students, we have transitioned to online learning. While our campus is closed, our admissions process is not--we look forward to connecting with families through web conferences, Zoom webinars, and through our social media channels.

    We pride ourselves--now more than ever--on being responsive, personal, and with you in this process. That hasn't changed and we'll keep looking for more ways to connect you to the campus and community we have at Wayland Academy.
