Wayfinding Academy was founded on the frustrating realization that our culture of higher education is backwards
First you pick a 4-year college, then you pick a major from a list, then you figure out what you’re going to do, and then you try it out.
We want to turn the system frontwards
That’s because we believe education is our chance to make the world better. What you do with your life matters to more than just you, and when we each live life on purpose, we all thrive.
Yes, this sounds idealistic. But it’s real. Strategically located in beautiful Portland, Oregon, we’ve been authorized by Oregon’s Higher Education Coordinating Commission to grant Associate’s Degrees in Self & Society. We are committed to stretching the norms of education from within the system.
