    I love it here the staff and students are extremely friendly and the community is more of a family. The friends I am very close with I think of as my brothers and sisters and all of the other students I still think of as my cousins. This is a great place to send your child!

    Wayland Academy is a terrific school. Our children have attended Wayland for years as day-students. The faculty and staff act with sincerity and diligence to both encourage and discipline the children as well as mentor them as young adults. Wayland offers a great blend of academic rigor athletics and arts. Truly a special place.
