Does the sound of this program make you jump out of your chair with hope and excitement for a future life of purpose? If yes, we invite you to apply to become a student!

Our application process is about getting to know you as a human—what lights you up and where you want your life to go. Test scores and letter grades are not who you are and therefore are not a critical part of determining your fit.

How to become a student in Fall 2017: 

  1. Schedule a chat with one of our crew members to learn more about the Wayfinding Academy and our process. If you and the crew member determine that Wayfinding might be a good fit, you'll move onto step 2. 
  2. Apply starting on January 10, 2017 using our online student application.
  3. Apply by March 10, 2017 to be given priority consideration for scholarships.
  4. Apply by June 2nd, 2017 to meet our regular application deadline. 
  5. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until the cohort is full.
  6. New student orientation and classes begin August 28, 2017.

Statement of Non Discrimination 

Wayfinding Academy reaffirms its commitment to a policy of equal opportunity in education and employment.

More than that, we believe that justice is an active pursuit, not a passive stance. As such, we place special emphasis on candidates from underrepresented racial, ethnic, religious, gender, sexual orientation, economic, (dis)ability, and cultural backgrounds which will increase the diversity of our organization and help us strive toward justice on those (and other) fronts.

Wayfinding Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, religion, national origin, disability, previous military service or any other protected category in the admission of students, employment, access or treatment in its programs and activities or the administration of its educational and employment policies. Discrimination or harassment on the basis of these factors is in direct conflict with the mission of the Wayfinding Academy and strictly prohibited.

Wayfinding Academy is strongly committed to building an inclusive environment and will not tolerate any actions of any individual or group that violate this Policy.

I feel more confident in myself and more motivated to figure out what self-actualization means to me.
