Wayland is a welcoming, safe community where students can truly be themselves. Strong faculty/student relationships, regular seated meals, small class sizes and residence hall communities, and plenty of one-on-one attention help students think of the community as their "Wayland family." Students and faculty members come to trust and care about one another since they interact in the classroom, in the residence hall, in athletics, and in student organizations.
Students gain leadership skills through student government, Student Activities Board, Prefect and Proctor positions, and a variety of other fun and educational opportunities.
Wayland's mentoring program ensures that every student has close contact with a faculty member. Students are taught the value of giving back to their community through the Life Skills program, the Day of Caring, and other service opportunities.
Through these and other activities, students form lasting friendships and receive a well-rounded education in and out of the classroom.
