Who We Are

Winston Transitions is a highly-individualized gap year program for students ages 17 to 21 with learning differences such as dyslexia, nonverbal learning disabilities (NVLD), and executive functioning difficulties (ADHD). Transitions provides an extension to the Winston Preparatory School educational experience when appropriate by precisely identifying and matching each student's needs.

Our unique model of education provides intense skill remediation while encouraging students to build independence, resilience, responsibility, self-awareness, and self-advocacy. We deeply understand each student, individualize a program to meet their needs, and continually refine this program based on individual progress, while building a powerful sense of community.
