The Endowment

At Wayland, we celebrate the great minds and unique talents of our students and faculty.  

No matter where we came from and no matter where we go in life, we know that our time at Wayland Academy helped make all of us who we are today.

Engaged. Dynamic. Diverse. High-achieving. These are just some of the words that describe the students that come to us from 28+ different countries around the world, as well as across the United States, local region and Beaver Dam community. To find this level of global diversity in the heart of Wisconsin is truly transformative. Endowed support for financial aid makes it all possible, ensuring generations of Wayland students enjoy the very best education in a supportive, thriving environment. 

Providing young people with a cutting-edge education also requires attracting talented and dedicated faculty. Our goal is to recruit and retain the caliber of teacher who could work anywhere–locally or nationally–but choose to be at Wayland.  Teachers come to Wayland for many reasons—our community and culture, our students, and our programs—and compensation remains a critical driver. Through additional investments in endowed faculty support, Wayland Made will ensure that the Academy can continue to offer attractive salaries and benefits packages for our teachers in a highly-competitive market, while also providing funding for professional development. Growing this endowment will equip Wayland to support faculty as they pursue continuing education credits; work to complete advanced degrees; attend conferences to stay up-to-date on best practices in their field; pursue independent research or projects that enrich their teaching; and collaborate with one another to develop cross-curricular learning opportunities that directly benefit our students.
