Our flagship campus set on a hilltop within 326 pristine acres 60 miles from Boston.
Day, 5-night, and 7-night Boarding Options
While the majority students choose to board at the Winch, approximately 20% of the students commute from nearby communities.
Day students and 5-night boarders are welcome on campus for all weekend activities and events.
Your teachers will know you better – what your strengths and weaknesses are, and, more importantly, how you learn best and what is most interesting to you.
At the Winch, it is truly your high school experience, and not something designed for someone very different you.
CoLABs & iLAB
Research shows that the more interesting (or scary!) something is, the more likely we all are to learn more and retain it.
Our commitment is to make your learning more engaging and meaningful to you (and we will work to minimize the scary).
Greetings From Our Massachusetts Campus
High Impact Learning
The research confirms this. For you and almost every other student out there, you will learn and retain more if the learning is interesting to you, and you believe that what you are learning will really matter to you. You also learn and retain more by doing than listening or watching.
Classes That Work for You
Classes on the move – rarely sitting still – lots of discussion, debate and project work. Most will be micro-classes of 7-9 students, with lots of opportunities to be part of the discussion. You won’t need to suffer through lectures or busywork. This makes class much more interesting and fun.
Teachers Who Get You
How often have you felt that the teacher didn’t “get you” or that they didn’t care that much about what you feel is important? Your teachers will know you better – what you care about, how you learn best, and what skills and strategies will be most important to you in the future
