Wayland Academy Faculty

Wayland's faculty are far more than just talented educators. They are mentors, dormitory supervisors, and coaches. They assist students in academics, as well as in character development. They are accessible, caring, and completely engage in the life of the school. Most reside on campus in dormitories or in faculty houses on neighboring Franklin Street.
