Teaching the mind, tending the soul, and deepening the experience of the Good, the True, and the Beautiful.

A Unique Role in the Community

From Ceilidh dances to live choir performances, Wayside plays a unique cultural role in the larger community.

Since 1995, Wayside Academy has been providing families with an exemplary classical, Catholic curriculum for children in elementary and high school, small classes, and a warm community.

Immersed in a virtue-based environment, students learn the fundamentals of education and develop a joy for learning. The focus is on teaching the mind, tending the soul, and deepening the experience of the Good, the True, and the Beautiful.

Tuition is affordable. All families who believe in our mission are welcome! 

Are you thinking of a change of schools for your family? Are you interested in a place where learning is fun and engaging, and at the same time having substance, value, and virtue both inside AND outside the classroom? Do you think this is impossible to achieve? 

Why not come visit Wayside and see what we're all about? You and your child are welcome to sit in on classes, meet the students and teachers and other families who make this such a remarkable place. 

Visits can be scheduled anytime throughout the year.  Your child is welcome, at no cost, to experience life at Wayside for a day, an afternoon, or for a whole week. 

Call the Principal, Adam Parker, to schedule your visit today! 705-749-3658 or aparker"at"Waysideacademy.com

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.

Sister Infant
“Over the pa
st 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.”

On Nov. 3,  Sister Infant of Prague professed her first vows at the Bascilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. What a blessed event to have witnessed!

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