Welcome to the Wayzata Leadership Academy!
The Wayzata Leadership Academy (WLA) is a community of student leaders dedicated to promoting a positive school culture by upholding Wayzata's slogan of "Character and Scholarship for Life," and being role models for their peers. The goal of our group is to intentionally and purposefully promote and develop character and leadership qualities in our students.WLA was formed several years ago to ensure our high academic standards go hand in hand with strong personal ethics. Students are nominated to be part of advisory groups that meet before school and take on projects such as our anti-bullying campaign, promoting our five pillars around the school and marketing ideas for people to commit to greater actions of character. The five pillars are Relationships, Respect, Responsibility, Ethics, and Awareness.
