Embracing A Global Community

International students are vital to creating a vibrant learning community. Hailing from twenty-four countries, our international students bring a diversity of perspectives and experiences that elevate and enrich our academic, athletic, and creative programs.  Every year, our international students gain offers at many of the most competitive undergraduate and graduate programs in the United States, including Columbia, Cornell, UNC Chapel Hill, Tufts, and New York University to name a few.


International students are community leaders on campus. They are team captains, dorm proctors, Student Government representatives. Students at The Winchendon School make an impact across campus and leave with the skills to be leaders on a global stage.


The Winchendon School has three levels of English Language Support. With a maximum of six students per class, we ensure that our students make rapid academic progress from the day they arrive on campus. When students move into our mainstream English and history program, they have the option of taking our two-year Composition and Rhetoric class series, focused on developing higher-level writing and speaking skills.
