The Winston Preparatory School’s Outdoor Education Program is an experiential education opportunity that provides all students with the opportunity to develop the “Qualities of an Independent and Sustainable Learner” without the academic pressures of reading and writing.


Each year, the Juniors of WPSCT participate in a week-long trip focusing on problem-solving and social communication skills while completing team-building activities and marine life exploration tasks. This trip is offered to strengthen the above skills while preparing students for the transition from WPS. On this adventure, students learn how to take ownership for their responsibilities while taking care of themselves and their classmates. This pedagogy serves to help shape the students’ character and potential.
This fall, students in middle grades will be attending an overnight experiential education trip to the Mystic Seaport Museum. Students will have the opportunity to participate in sailing activities, experience lessons in both history and science, and will enjoy a planetarium.
In the spring, the senior class will participate in a Habitat for Humanity project. Last year, students worked for 4 days helping to refurbish a home in New Rochelle, NY. Specific projects included flooring, painting, and landscaping projects.
