crest-wayside-stylized-smallAt Wayside Academy, we recognize that our students have a distinctive place in their family, school, community, country and Church as persons whom God has created and called.

Supportive and inspiring teachers, a lively Catholicism and a genuine respect for family and culture form a milieu in which boys and girls can become joyful young men and women of accomplishment, service and faith.

By interweaving the classical, natural, and Catholic into an integrated learning experience, Wayside offers students an outstanding Education for Life in terms of faith, vocation, livelihood, citizenship and personal fulfilment.

From the tradition of Western civilization, Wayside has adapted the classical emphasis upon grammar, logic and rhetoric known as the Trivium. At the primary, intermediate and secondary levels, mastering fundamentals (grammar), thinking clearly (logic) and communicating well (rhetoric) permeates every educational endeavour regardless of the discipline. Possession of these 'tools of learning' equips the young person to succeed admirably in any walk of life.

While the horizons of history seem endless, a student's time is limited. And so, his course of study must be focussed in order to attain understanding. Over twelve years, the Wayside student mines the richness of Western learning - as represented by the heritage of the great cities of Jerusalem, Athens and Rome and mediated through Christian Europe - by systematically examining aspects of the ancient, medieval, renaissance and modern periods.

Miss Martha Marrocco, who has given ten years of devoted service to Wayside Academy, has also answered the call to religious life, joining the SSVM order. Mr. Adam Parker, Principal, noted that the gifts and generosity of our departing teachers will continue to light the way for others.

“Over the paMartha Marroccost years it has been my place of work, but I rarely thought of it that way. Wayside is a place to pray, to teach children about God and the world He made, a community of people who strengthen, support and challenge each other to follow Christ more closely. Yes, each one of us is human, and we all make mistakes, but in our community it is obvious that all are trying hard to seek His Kingdom first of all.”

Our Goals

We strive to promote a very personal and engaging education system, one permeated with the light of Catholicism and a sense of joy.
