Wayland Academy is a member of the Hybrid Learning consortium (HLC), founded and directed by the Barstow School. The HLC is a collective of independent schools around the world that develop high quality rigorous online courses for high school students. Wayland students have the opportunity to take semester, year-long, and summer elective courses through HLC. The cost of the classes will be incurred by the student and is non-refundable after the course begins. Students may take an HLC course as their fifth or sixth academic course. They may only take one HLC course per semester. Students cannot enroll in HLC courses that are offered to Wayland students on campus. Students are unable to drop the course once the add/drop period is over. Students must fill out an approval form with the appropriate signatures of the Academic Dean, Department Chair, and College Counselor. The credits earned will be reflected on the student transcript as Wayland credit with an indication of the HLC course and will be counted in the student’s GPA. All other online school courses have to be approved by the Academic Dean.
