Wayfinding Academy is much more than a college. It’s a movement. 

We’re building a movement of people who constantly evolve and stretch themselves. They are thoughtful and compassionate. They explore, do the scary stuff, and grow from it. These people ‘get’ how humans learn best (hint: it’s probably not limited to 400-person lecture halls inside 4-year universities), and they’re ready to join the higher education revolution.

If you believe education is our chance to make the world better—if our creed resonates with your core—the person we’re building this movement for is you. The press is starting to notice, too. 

If you believe what we believe, and think that together we might just do something amazing, come join the movement.

The first time I learned about this, I almost cried because it just spoke to me so deeply about how I grew up and how we need to change our education system. Everything that you guys have done has been absolutely breathtaking. You’re all such amazing, world-changing people and I’m continually inspired by you.”
