Wayfinding College

Wayfinding Academy Welcome

Wayfinding College is a two-year nonprofit college here in St. Johns whose mission is to provide a trailblazing alternative for those who aren’t well served by traditional higher education and to help cultivate them into curious, resilient and purpose-driven people. The Wayfinding learning community assists students in choosing what they want to do with their lives and supports them as they start doing it, provides a more adventurous, student-focused experience and nudges others in the higher education system to do the same.

Check out the Wayfinding creed for more about their foundational beliefs.

When we each live life on purpose we all thrive.
