Student Wellness and Support
Just as the bond between faculty advisors and students is at the heart of our curriculum, a shared commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion connects our entire community.
Waynflete is a warm and welcoming place where students of all backgrounds want to be.
Waynflete gives students the freedom to find their personal style, celebrate their identity and culture, voice their opinions, discover their passions and interests, and direct their learning. With no pressure to fit in, Waynflete students are empowered to stand out. And when they struggle with the challenges of growing up? They are surrounded by care and offered professional support.
Upper School Student Supports
For students with documented learning challenges, Waynflete can provide tutoring, extended time, or other accommodations. Faculty advisors confer with students and families at the start of the school year to get a strong plan in place and check in regularly with tutors, students, parents, and teachers to monitor progress and address issues throughout the year. Waynflete advisors may recommend testing, evaluation, and academic support for students to address emerging issues.
Health Management Plans
Students managing ongoing health concerns or experiencing short-term health challenges like concussions can rely on the Waynflete health team to help them navigate temporary classroom location changes, elevator privileges, waived physical activity, and more.
Waynflete knows it is not always possible to come to school healthy and ready to learn. Teachers and staff are attuned to students’ wellbeing and watch for early warning signs of emerging mental health challenges. Our robust wellness curriculum also focuses on mental health to empower students to seek help if they are concerned about themselves or a friend. We employ two licensed clinical social workers as well as consulting clinical psychologists to be able to quickly and effectively connect students in crisis with effective services and referrals.
We know every student needs more this year.
More one-on-one attention from teachers. More hands-on, in-depth, challenging learning. More time to connect with friends. See how Waynflete will make the most of this school year
