Wayland Made Building the Future of Wayland Academy

For more than 168 years, Wayland Academy has offered students remarkable opportunities for knowledge, discovery, and growth. We give great minds a place to learn and to make an impact.

Innovation requires inspiration. No matter where we begin our journey, Wayland allows students the time and space to both innovate and form meaningful relationships, to discover raw talents and passions and discipline and resilience. When we challenge ourselves to be better, we set a precedent for the whole community. That’s what it means to be Wayland Made. To be deeply formed by the Wayland experience. To begin where we are and to embrace the possibilities of something new. To come together to shape the world and the Wayland community. The same community that helped shape all of us.

The Wayland Made campaign goal is $10 million, with $9.5 million committed to date by generous donors. We need your help to raise the remaining $500,000 to reach our goal. 

Areas of Focus

Your support today ensures that the next generation of Wayland Made students will thrive tomorrow. Capital efforts will see the completion of impactful campus enhancements, including the stunning new dorm, Burnham Hall, for girls, as well as a revitalized Discovery Hall, with an expansive biology lab,  lecture space, and indoor/outdoor classrooms. Giving our campus these new spaces will provide our talented students and faculty with inspiring facilities that reflect the mission and the quality of a Wayland education. 

At the heart of the place are the people. We know that when great minds from diverse backgrounds come together, anything is possible. That’s why we are thrilled to announce Wayland’s effort to increase our Endowment. Building this vital fund means that Wayland continues to demonstrate excellence in education. It also means providing scholarships to ensure that our student body remains dynamic and diverse. 

We welcome you to join us and help lead the way for the next generation of Wayland Made students. Donate today. Every gift counts!

In order to attract the caliber of students and faculty which Wayland wants and must have to properly compete in a very competitive educational environment, it is essential that the campus and its facilities are kept up to date and to build on our endowment . . . Karen and I hope each of you will find good reasons to assist Wayland with one or more of these important projects as we have done.
