Winston provides an environment of support and academic success for students with learning differences. Our admissions process aligns with that and is designed to be supportive, warm, and informative for prospective families.
Prospective Winston students must have average to superior intellectual ability and a diagnosed learning difference in one or more of the following areas:
- Reading, including dyslexia
- Math, including dyscalculia
- Written expression, including dysgraphia
- Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Students without a diagnosed learning difference who are experiencing academic difficulties in a traditional classroom setting will also be considered.
