We developed iLAB to deliver a real-world learning experience for aspirational students who benefit from an individualized education. It’s an education intentionally designed to transfer to college and career.
Real-world learning takes place outside of the classroom giving students a resume to help them stand out in today’s hyper-competitive college admissions process.
Each student has an opportunity for an internship or explore a passion before they graduate and every junior holds a job on or off campus allowing you to step-up to try out new interests.
ColLABs (short for Collaborative Laboratory) are elective style workshops that culminate in interdisciplinary, immersive, collaborative projects. Above all, we offer opportunities for hands-on, and field-based study to get students into the real world. Students select from a range of ColLAB projects, all of which emphasize fundamental skills and habits central to The Winchendon School: character, collaboration, initiative, risk-taking, and persistence. For example, some recent ColLABs include:
- Introduction to Digital Filmmaking
- KPOP! A Field Study in Korean Pop Culture
- Living and Learning on the Long Trail: Ecology and Wilderness Ethics
- Internships and independent study in medicine, business, video production, design, marine biology, and animation
