“In the universe, there are things that are known, and things that are unknown, and in between, there are doors.”― William Blake

Decades ago, Glen and Ella Dye (class of 1907) gave gifts to the Academy to create the dorms that bear their names. The doors of those residences have welcomed thousands of Wayland students since 1963. Now, you can pay it forward and ensure that new generations of Wayland students are welcomed through those doors and others on campus.

Whether you lived in Glen or Ella or not, you opened many doors in your time at the Academy; what doors did Wayland open for you?  Was it the door to

  • academic excellence, where your mind was challenged, and your potential soared.

  • lifelong friendships forged in shared experiences and unwavering support.

  • discovery and exploration, where you stepped outside your comfort zone and found your passions.

  • confidence and leadership, empowered to make a difference in the world.


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!
