At the heart of the Winston Prep learning methodology is understanding each and every student’s individual learning needs and profile — often for the first time in their lives. What is unique to Winston Prep is that we connect research with practice, which allows us to approach each individual student and truly discover their learning needs. We are able to create a successful educational environment where students are learning to become independent — at the same time being part of a robust community.
Everything we do is based on an in-depth understanding of each student. Winston Prep accomplishes this through its Continuous Feedback System. We assess and understand both learning challenges and strengths, and develop individualized programs for each student — while building a sense of strong community.


The supremely skilled faculty at Winston Prep were able to help our son through those rough spots. He is 16 and we’re beginning to discuss which colleges might be a good fit whereas when he was 9, we merely hoped he would make it through the school day. The groundwork for that transformation was laid over by the faculty and Focus teachers at the Winston Prep. For that, we are eternally grateful.
Winston Prep is the only educational institution for learning differences, such as dyslexia, executive functioning difficulties (ADHD) and nonverbal learning disorders (NVLD), that provides a Focus Program. This program provides daily, one-to-one remedial instruction for each student, targeting individual goals in the areas of greatest need. Focus instructors are responsible for developing a thorough understanding of each students’ learning profile, creating individualized goals that target remediation in various areas of need, applying appropriate methodologies, and utilizing appropriate materials to address these goals.
