Residence Life

Approximately 70 percent of Wayland students live on campus in residence halls, while the remainder are from the local area. Students from all around the world live, eat, study, and hang out together in this supportive and connected setting. They gain independence and learn study skills, time management, resilience, compassion, and many other important skills while still having a lot of fun! 
Choosing to come to boarding school might feel like a leap of faith. When students arrive at Wayland, they are surrounded by a campus family that support and encourage them along the way. Faculty/student relationships are strong here. Every student has a faculty mentor to guide students on their journey of academic and social success. Mentor groups meet weekly and plan fun activities like carving Halloween pumpkins or heading to the local ice cream shop for treats. Mentors also provide parents with updates of how their student is doing.
