Open House

Join us on campus on Friday, November 3, to explore all that Wayland Academy has to offer! A place where city lights meet starry night skies, where you have the time and space to think about who you really are and who you’re ready to become.

  • Talk with students and faculty as you tour our classrooms, residence halls,
    and athletic facilities.
  • Learn about the admission process and life at Wayland.

We look forward to helping you discover what makes Wayland the heart of the heartland!
