At Wayland, students explore their interests, from fine arts to fitness and animation to leadership, through a wide variety of special interest clubs and leadership opportunities.


Some clubs, such as the Robotics and Technology Club, the Model United Nations, and the Junior Classical League, travel and compete against other schools. Other student organizations focus on student interests on campus, such as the Thespian Society, the Art Club, the Ping Pong Club, and the Yoga Club. New clubs may be created when students want to explore a passion such as culinary arts, filmmaking or entrepreneurial business.
