We are many, but together we are one.
The Wayland Academy community spans the entire globe—7,000+ strong—and together we are mighty. Our alumni and friends have a strong history of support and helping us to advance the mission of the Academy. Your gift, no matter the size, can make a big difference—and when it is combined with gifts from many other alumni and friends, it can help fund projects that support current programs on campus, it can honor beloved members of our community, it can leave a permanent mark on campus, it can help students to take educational field trips . . . and more.
Your support shows our current students and faculty that you believe in a Wayland education. It shows that you are investing in the future of the Academy and helping to continue the world-class education and iconic facilities that the institution maintains.
“In the universe, there are things that are known, and things that are unknown, and in between, there are doors.”― William Blake
What doors did Wayland open for you?
Now, it's our turn to open doors for others. Your gift will allow us to improve accessibility, enhance safety and security, boost energy efficiency and ensure that the Dye Dorms and other campus facilities remain a haven for learning and growth for years to come.
Please continue to open doors for our students by contributing today!
Refill, Reuse, Reduce
We are excited to announce our plan to install water bottle filling stations in the school's Academic building! These additional water bottle filling stations will provide our students, faculty, and staff with easy access to clean, filtered water, encouraging them to stay hydrated and reduce their reliance on single-use plastic bottles, and encourage use of reusable water bottles.
Please help us raise $5,000 to install water bottle refill stations on campus!
Help Build Wayland's Crew Team
Wayland's first ever waterfront program was launched in the spring of 2022. Since then, 51 students have participated on Wayland's Crew Team during both the spring and fall seasons. With donor support, we have been able to purchase new cox boxes, shoes, as well as used boats and oars; however, we still need funds for transportation to contests and additional equipment.
Please help us raise $60,000 to help build our crew and support them in meeting their goals, now and in the future!
