Thanks to the over 300 people who came out on June 14 to participate in the Spring Dinner & Ceilidh! It was an amazing night under the BIG tent!!
The silent auction and raffle tables were packed with beautiful gifts, the food was beyond delicious (no one went away hungry!!), and the ceilidh dance was as much fun as ever (but too short! We could have danced for ages!). A hearty thanks to all the businesses who donated items for the auction & raffle, & to all the sponsors who made the night possible!
See you again next year! Here are just a few of the images from the night....
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
At 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.
