Homecoming 2024 Countdown

Homecoming 2024—October 11-13, 2024

Wayland welcomes all alumni, former faculty and staff, and friends to campus October 11–13, 2024 to celebrate our 100th Homecoming! Please make plans to join us for an in-person weekend of events highlighting everything that makes the Wayland experience special. 

All alumni, former faculty and staff, and friends of the Academy are invited to help us celebrate the milestone reunions (classes ending in a “4” or a “9”).

Reunion Giving: As a class, we are asking you to pool your resources together to purchase a brick that will pay tribute to a favorite teacher or to honor your Wayland class. More information is coming soon!
