From Wayland Academy

Wayland Academy is more. More opportunities to explore. More time with friends and teachers. More exciting adventures. Wayland is a place where you will be surrounded by peers who will celebrate, challenge, and support you. Wayland students find passions that they have yet to explore during their time on campus and they find joy in learning through inquiry, creative problem solving, and meaningful experiential learning opportunities. Wayland is nestled in a safe and welcoming community where you are short walks from the movie theater, restaurants, the lake and a hospital where students have the opportunity to earn shadowing hours if they choose to pursue a medical career after graduation. Everything you need is right here.

Media Studies Program at Wayland Academy

Wayland students have the opportunity to create media as artists and creators but also to engage with media as thoughtful consumers. Our new media studies program includes workshops, and classes, in which students learn to produce podcasts and video productions of their own while also learning about the media landscape in the world at large through off-campus experiences and guest presenters.
