Wayman Academy of the Arts was founded by Rev. Mark L. Griffin in 1999, where he currently serves as Chairman of the Board.  The Elementary Charter School was approved as one of Duval County’s newest charter schools, and in August 2000 opened its doors to approximately 150 kindergarten through 5th grade students.  Having enrolled in excess of 400 students, and now in its 16th year of operation, Wayman Academy is continuously striving for academic excellence.
