Welcome to Wayzata Public Schools Community Education
Grounded in the core values of lifelong learning and citizen involvement, the Community Education Department is an integral component of the Wayzata Public Schools. We strive to provide opportunities to learners of every age through a variety of programs and services. Opportunities are offered to local citizens, schools, agencies, businesses and institutions to become active participants in our learning system both as a learner and as a resource to it. We expand learning beyond kindergarten through grade 12 to include all community members and embrace both formal and informal learning opportunities. We create an environment that views education as anything that enhances life and expands personal potential.
Recognized as one of the most respected programs in the country, Wayzata Community Education has a veteran staff of almost 200. Additional members serve as program instructors sharing their expertise to both youth and adult students. Service is a key component in providing opportunities for adults to become classroom volunteers and for K-12 students to engage in service and volunteerism.
Community Education also schedules and operates district facilities before and after school hours, on weekends, holidays and during the summer. These facilities become home to programs offered by a host of organizations ranging from athletics, music and language programs. Through community use of facilities and cooperative programming, we strive to contribute to a community that values collaboration, partnerships and maximum use of school and community resources.
Driven by the vision to be a model of excellence among lifelong learning communities, we invite you to be a lifelong learner and explore the possibilities that Wayzata Community Education may hold for you. If any of our staff can be of assistance to you in your learning journey, please let us know.
