We Love Students Who Don’t (Necessarily) Love School.
High impact, engaged learning and support from anywhere and designed for the student who wants to remain in their current high school classes but needs more to be successful. From a Learning Strategies Lab to credit classes in physics and chemistry, we’ve put together an online program for students who need work with skills development for academic anxiety, learning differences, or executive functioning.
It’s high school, personalized.
What Makes Us Different?
Real teachers, teaching in real time for credit classes or homework learning support, or both! Established in 1926, The Winchendon School was founded on the belief that “a scholastic program fitted to the needs and aims of each student” results in academic success. Personalized to fit you.
