Wayland Academy was founded in 1855 and for 152 years has continued to fulfill its objective of educating young people. The Academy’s programs will continue to place a strong emphasis on intellectual, spiritual, and physical growth so that its graduates will take active and fulfilling roles in society. Wayland Academy is committed to encouraging the following core values essential for life-long learning and the development of character as reflected in our motto: “Knowledge and Character”. Our mission is to prepare young people for a successful college experience and a rapidly changing world by opening their minds to the pursuit of knowledge and their hearts to the development of strong character. Since its inception in 1855, Wayland Academy has been solely dedicated to the education of young people. The curriculum of the Academy, seen in its broadest sense, encompasses time-tested activities that prepare students to be successful beyond the high school years and to lead meaningful lives. Over time, the four Corinthian pillars of Wayland Hall have come to symbolize the basic traditions that underlie the philosophy of the Academy. The pillars represent Scholarship, Faith, Health, and Service. These are the components that the Academy recognizes as essential to developing well-rounded individuals.
