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 what we believe, and think that together we might just do something amazing, come join the movement.
Here’s what you can do:

Surround yourself with a community of people who want to live life on purpose. We are artists, accountants, educators, nurses, entrepreneurs, and more with a common drive to make the world better. Events range from casual meetups to important discussions to fancy-fun holiday celebrations.
Our community education programs are designed to fuel the movement and make the cost of tuition accessible to all. All the while, you get to refresh your purpose, try on new skills, and connect with a community. Join us for a Lab!

You don’t have to simply wish this existed when you were younger. You can make sure it’s a choice for the future.
We’re ditching the higher education funding model that leaves admissions departments scrambling to meet quotas and college graduates in heavy debt. We’ve replaced it with a community-supported model that doesn’t ask students to shoulder the whole cost of education.
That’s because we believe education is an investment we share--after all, education affects all of us, not just the ones in the classroom.
