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.
Founded in 1926 and accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, The Winchendon School is the best college prep school for students with significant unrealized potential. As a School, we are committed to meeting the individual needs of every student no matter where they are in the world.
It’s high school, personalized.
As a school, we believe in the importance of maintaining open lines of communication with families and providing regular feedback to students and parents almost on a daily basis. Maintaining an open dialogue at all times, and not just when things are challenging benefits students when they feel supported academically and emotionally boosting their self-confidence and self-worth.
For parents, knowing their child(ren) is attending an accredited institution, not only provides peace-of-mind their student(s) is receiving an excellent education, but that it will be recognized by colleges and universities globally upon graduation.
Why Choose an Online Education?
For families, an online education from Winchendon provides students with a college prep education to meet their individual needs, free from distractions in a traditional educational setting in the privacy of their own home. Students can succeed regardless of where they are geographically or their learning style. We believe in supporting each student’s individual learning style and educational needs by creating personalized academic plans.
What Makes Us Different?
By prioritizing personalized instruction, WinchOnline strategically combines live digital classes that average 6-9 students with individual mentoring, built-in extra help and for those students that may require it, additional academic support to ensure that no student is left behind and each student is moving forward. In addition to the comprehension benefits associated with synchronous classes, it gives students the opportunity to collaborate with peers and reflect on what they are learning.
The Winchendon School, by promoting collaboration and engagement between faculty and students fosters a well-rounded learning environment that helps to improve socialization amongst students which is further enhanced through online clubs and organizations offered at the school and overseen by school faculty.
What Our Families Say
She has not only been supported with her class work, but is actively developing strategies that fit her learning style and strengthening skills to overcome her weaknesses.
Our daughter would NEVER have been college ready without this pivotal step. She now knows SHE CAN.
Why Is an Online Education with Winchendon Better?
There are a number of good online academies out there, but none of which offer the level of substantive, individualized student support as Winchendon Online. You’ll find phrases like asynchronous (which is synonymous for independent) learning at many of these schools, alongside an emphasis on rigor, responsibility, and independence. This means these programs are built for teens who are ready and able to manage all of their work on their own. Hey, we love mature and self-actualized students who don’t need any help! But the real truth is that a plurality of our teens need coaching, mentoring, tutoring, and sincere engagement from adults who care about them (their Winchendon School teachers) to grow and develop into the learners, thinkers, and doers they aspire to be. The Winchendon School Online exists to serve those students who need more, not less.
If your student is fine learning on their own, we encourage you to visit Stanford Online, BYU’s High School Program, or Laurel Springs School. But if your student needs real individualized learning support in their core academic classes in order to grow into their promise and achieve academic success. Winchendon Online is the place for you.
