Summer Programs

Each summer, The Winston School offers a six-week summer program for students who need additional coursework to master the required skills and content of the curriculum. Open to The Winston School students as well as others, the summer school has proven a great way for many to begin their Winston experience or find the time they need to be successful. The 2017 Summer School Program is June 26th to August 4th from 8:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.

In previous years The Winston School has hosted an annual summer academy of the arts for high school and advanced middle school students for three weeks in July.

Dan Peragine, an 24-year veteran teacher at the school initiated the summer session in 2007 and patterned that first summer program after the 48 Hour Film Projects with students participating in a two-week Indie Filmmakers Bootcamp to complete a film project from concept to post production.

The program was extended to three weeks and students filmed a closed-set production to be followed by a live performance.

During the three-week intensive, students:

  • Learned history of the specific art discipline as well as its greatest practitioners and its predominant aesthetic standards
  • Gave and received feedback with peers and their teachers and learned how to use feedback in advancing their own creative work
  • Met and interacted with at least one working professional in the field and explored related career opportunities within the broader field
  • Took one or more field trips
  • Interacted and collaborated with students in the academy classes

There will be no Summer Academy of the Arts for 2017 and will resume in 2018.  Please call The Winston School with any questions or more information.
