History

The mission of the Winchendon School is to work with students who have good ability, but for a variety of reasons have not reached their potential. The methods are student-centered and the curriculum is process-oriented. We teach study skills and we inculcate good study habits. We have a 6:1 student/teacher ratio, which allows us to individualize our coursework and to address varying learning styles. The school environment is structured and supportive.

Considering Financial Aid?

Schools administer their financial aid individually. The keys to seeking financial aid are:

  1. Planning, including dedicating time to sit-down and work through the paperwork and process
  2. Communicating with the admission and financial aid officers at the school
  3. Completing the paperwork and forms early and accurately (forms and paperwork can differ between schools)
  4. Meeting the financial aid deadline (it's early).
