Students at Wayland Academy come from more than 25 different countries and five continents. This diversity provides every student with a unique global perspective and the rare chance to interact with a myriad of cultures. Events take place throughout the year which allow students to discuss and demonstrate their own traditions. The Annual Global Fair, held in February, allows students to share their culture and favorite foods with the entire community. A sampling of countries currently represented at Wayland include Vietnam, Iran, Japan, Russia, China, Spain, Poland, Turkey, Rwanda, Kenya, Bahamas, and Afghanistan.
For students arriving from outside of the United States, Wayland offers an International Student Orientation to help prepare them for life in Wisconsin, minimizing any adjustment our international students may experience before the school year begins.
At Wayland, English Language Learning is integrated into the curriculum. We invest in the success of every student and this extra language experience and exposure helps students get ahead and stay ahead in every subject.
