Winston Prep: Where Students With Learning Differences Unlock Their Potential

(Courtesy of Winston Prep) Struggling to find a supportive environment that meets a child’s learning needs? Winston Preparatory School New Jersey, located in Morris County, offers an individualized learning environment for students ages 8-21 with learning differences,such as dyslexia, ADHD and nonverbal learning disorder (NVLD).

Unlike any other school, Winston Prep groups students based on their learning difficulty, skill level and educational and social-emotional needs. Before students spend their first day at Winston Prep, the faculty spend weeks designing an academic program specific to their needs. The school believes what matters most is developing a deep understanding of how each child learns and then creating the right environment to help the child reach their full potential. As a result, students see Winston Prep as the right place for them, where their individual strengths are nurtured and where they will learn how to understand and address their challenges.

“I rarely leave the parent-teacher conference at Winston Prep without tears in my eyes. I am amazed how well these people know my child, how concerned they are about my child, and how much thought and effort these people have given,” said Peter B., a Winston Prep parent.

Winston Prep students experience extraordinary transformations in their lives and learning and its high school graduation rate is 99.7%. Approximately 80% of Winston Prep graduates attend college, while 20% move on to transitional, vocational or other post-secondary programs.

Another dynamic part of Winston Prep’s model of research-based teaching methods is the innovative Focus Program. Expert teachers work one-to-one with students every day to address areas of greatest need, to help them develop their own understanding of how they learn, and to nurture their unique strengths and help students fully take advantage of them. Focus teachers are the first line of communication between families and schools; they provide weekly updates to families, including important observations and current activities and progress within Focus sessions and in content classes.

Student life on campus is a vibrant blend of academics, social connections, extracurricular activities, service learning, athletics, and visual and performing arts programs. These opportunities not only foster essential skill development but also contribute to the overall dynamic and robust community at Winston Prep.

To facilitate learning and social opportunities year-round, Winston Prep NJ also offers summer programming for current Winston Prep and non-Winston Prep students. The program is an extension of the Winston Prep philosophy and aims to enhance academic skills while fostering independence and social connections. Offered in-person or online, the program is open for students in grades three to 12.
