Wayland Academy Reviews
The Academy becomes strict when it comes to academics; They treat the school as if it were a college. The average class size is 14 students per class. With the class size being very small, there is more 1 on 1 times with the teacher during or outside of class.
Although athletics might not be the best, it is good for students to be able to get lots of playing time on the field or court, even though they are not a star player. There are also many clubs and other activities outside of athletics.
Overall, I think Wayland is a great school and I definitely recommend it!
Students were very diverse for a prep school, a good mix of int'l students, day students, boarding students; students on financial aid, well-off students; students from cities and from farms - the whole lot. Facilities are good and always improving, Wayland makes smart investments in itself.
Wayland doesn't excel in sports, but there's a plus to this. Anyone can participate and almost anyone can be good (relatively). If you're new to a sport, or not athletic, Wayland's great, because you'll get to enjoy the sport, learn, and never be cut or put down. Sports at Wayland are more like creating habits for an active lifestyle longterm.
