The Winchendon School

Thank you for considering The Winchendon School.


The Winchendon School was founded in 1926 on the premise that the best secondary education is based on "a scholastic program fitted to the needs and aims of each student." This philosophy continues to guide us over 90 years later.Caring, highly trained teachers provide each student with a dynamic and forward-thinking environment in which to develop strong character, study skills, learning strategies and confidence. The heart of The Winchendon School experience is rooted in our approach to meeting the needs of each individual student. Our graduates leave as well-rounded, confident, and self-reliant young adults - currently attending many of the country's finest colleges and universities.The Winchendon School is a coeducational college preparatory school serving students in grades 9-12 and post-graduate. The School serves boarding and day students from its main campus located outside Boston, MA and opened a second location to serve day students in New York City in September 2018.

Use of technology in the classroom

We embrace the way technology can help our students learn better, follow their passions, and develop the skills and competencies they will need in the evolving and competitive high-tech economy. Technology enables us to reach and support students with different learning styles, experiences, strengths and weaknesses in a way that was impossible just a few years ago.

Learning Support

Winchendon's teachers and leadership are committed to supporting a wide range of learning styles and differences.  Our micro-classes provide a great setting for kids who learn differently to excel.  Our teachers are specifically trained to use a variety of methods and practices to support different learners.  And our Learning Advocates provide additional support to make sure that your teachers know what approaches will most benefit you and to help you develop additional skills.
