Step Up. Take Advantage of All That Happens on the MA Campus.
Community is core to our school. Research shows us you’ll learn faster and better when you have strong connections to those around you. You’ll find opportunities built into your day to make connections or, if you’re on our Massachusetts campus, you’ll find day and boarding students mingled all across campus- gaming in the dorms, getting ready for a dance, or cheering each other on when the volleyball team reaches the championship round.
Wellness and Fitness
You’ll learn important life skills (and we don’t just mean doing your laundry), gain confidence, and learn how to navigate relationships outside of your family before heading off to college.
Our Health Center is staffed for immediate medical attention, counseling, health education, and resources that are available to students, faculty, and staff.
The local hospital is ten minutes away if needed.
Sunday Brunch. Team Lifts. A Coffee House.
Residential Life at The Winchendon School MA Will Surprise You.
Each dorm is supervised by dorm faculty and well as student proctors who provide day-to-day care and supervision of our residential community. Walk into any dorm room and you’ll find yourself surrounded by friends, listening to music, doing homework, practicing their lines for the play, or playing knee-hockey.
Day students are encouraged to hang out on campus, eat breakfast with their team before all-school meetings, or hang out with friends over dinner – you’ll find day students do everything our boarders do except move in!
Several weekends a year the Massachusetts campus has closed weekends. All boarders stay on campus, day students join them and everyone participates in activities together.
There Are Lots of Opportunities on the MA Campus on Weekends
- Trips to Boston, Six Flags, Skiing and Snowboarding
- Food – Looking for a sushi dinner or a great Italian meal? – Restaurants in Gardner, Fitchburg/Leominster, Worcester, Keene, and Boston
- Shopping Trips to Malls and Outlet Centers
- College and Professional Sports – or Concerts
- Pizza Nights and Food Trucks on Campus
- Movie Nights and Coffee Houses
- All-campus games such as Manhunt, Humans & Zombies, and Capture the Flag
- Mountain biking, hiking, or heading to a nearby lake on a warm day
And sometimes you will just want that quiet time – to play video games or binge watch a series with friends – or just to catch up with some quiet time for yourself.
The Best Thing About Living on Campus?
Your roommate just may be your best friend for life.
Our Winchendon Speaker Series brings three to four speakers on campus every year including Travis Roy, Sam Drazin, and Brooklyn Rainey to name a few.
