The 2024 Summer Program at the Winston Preparatory School New York campus provides students with the unique opportunity to participate in an individually designed program aimed to enhance academic skills and foster independence.
The Summer Program also gives parents the flexibility to create an academic program specifically matched to the needs of their child. The program develops decoding and encoding, reading comprehension, critical-thinking skills, memory retrieval, executive functioning skills, written language expression, self-advocacy, mathematical computation, social pragmatics, time-management skills, test preparation, and expressive language skills within a nurturing, academic environment. The summer staff consists of reading specialists, special education instructors, and speech and language pathologists from Winston’s full-time faculty.

We offer 45- or 90-minute, individualized instructional sessions. Based on Winston Preparatory School’s innovative Focus Program, students participate in one-on-one classes with a trained specialist to develop strategies to improve academic performance, strengthen targeted skills, enrich knowledge of specific content areas, and address areas of greatest challenge. The July Focus Program is specifically tailored to target areas of greatest need of each student.  An independent study program, SAT preparation course, or college preparatory class is also available. Please request an hour window between 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. when you would like each 45- or 90-minute session to begin and we will do our best to accommodate you. Tuition for the July Focus Program is $1,200 for twice weekly classes. Classes may also be scheduled to meet daily Monday through Thursday ($2,400) or twice daily ($4,800).
Students may also enroll in one-on-one Focus sessions during the August Program.  Sessions and hours are flexible and schedules can be designed for either mornings or afternoons classes for these three weeks.  Tuition for the August Program is $900 for twice-weekly classes. Classes may also be scheduled to meet daily Monday through Thursday ($1,800) or twice daily ($3,600).

Due to planned construction and renovation of our building, students can learn from the convenience of their home as one-on-one sessions will be held online utilizing our Distance Teaching model.  Scholarships are available.
