Winston Preparatory School: A Place To Be Understood–Wherever You Are

As an extension of our successful Distance Learning initiative, Winston Preparatory School has decided to use this experience to springboard a new, fully online community for students with learning differences everywhere. It is important for all children, but especially those who learn differently, to feel understood. Through Winston’s Continuous Feedback System , each child’s learning profile is analyzed and an individualized learning plan is created. Along with a focus on developing the Qualities of Sustainable and Independent Learners (QSIL) , we place a great emphasis on making sure all students feel welcome and are immersed within our culture and community. Now, no matter where you are, Winston’s flexible, individual program is now available online. You don’t have to come to us. Winston Preparatory School will meet you online.

An Individualized Approach

As we do on our physical campuses, after developing a deep understanding of each student, they are grouped together based on similar learning profiles. All classes include frequent assessment of programs and adaptations to programming based on student response and feedback. Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and student wellness, with a focus on socialization, are crucial components of the Winston Preparatory School community and embedded in all Focus, content, and nonacademic courses.

Winston Preparatory School students have some notable gifts, and our individual approach allows us to explore and develop these gifts. With the launch of our flexible online campus, we aim to reach more students than ever, all of whom deserve an education that meets their individual needs. Winston Preparatory School is a place to be understood wherever you are.

FROM OUR PROGRAM DIRECTOR

Welcome to Winston Online! We launched this brand new online learning program in September 2020 as a way to reach students all over the country, and to assist them on their journey of achieving social and academic independence. Similarly to our sister Winston campuses, Winston Online utilizes the Continuous Feedback System to fully understand our students, develop a highly individualized program for them, and then analyze their response to the program in order to make any necessary changes. All of our content classes are small and personalized, and our students also participate in a daily Focus instruction where they work one-on-one with a learning specialist to target personalized goals. In addition, we incorporate the qualities of a sustainable and independent learner (QSIL) into each class, including problem solving, self-reflection, and self-advocacy. Winston Online serves students with dyslexia, executive functioning difficulties (ADHD) and nonverbal learning disorders, from 4th through 12th grade. While most of our students are enrolled full time, Winston Online offers many different alternatives including a core content course schedule, Focus only, or an a la carte option. My favorite part about Winston Online is the community of students and teachers! Every Friday we have an all school meeting, where all members of Winston Online come together to chat and present ideas, projects, and to continue to develop our school culture as a virtual family.
