Preparing Students for Life Beyond Windsor School
As a college preparatory school, Windsor School creates a pathway for student success through a core curriculum and specialized learning opportunities. We help students find their passion and achieve their academic potential which ultimately leads to future growth opportunities. Since Windsor School’s first graduating class in 2017, more than half of graduating seniors have received a scholarship to a university or college in the country or abroad.
High school students will begin preparing for college during their freshman year with the help of Windsor teachers and Revolution Prep, an interactive, professional tutoring platform designed to boost scores and build confidence. During sophomore year, students will take Introduction to the College Admissions Process course and have the option to take the PSAT/NMSQT test to assess their knowledge early on. As students move into junior year, they will take various college preparation courses as well as the SAT/ACT assessment and SAT Subject Tests in the spring. In addition, students will practice writing college essays, develop an application list and visit schools during the summer. During senior year, students will take another college preparation course and begin applying to universities. Students will also have the option to take the SAT/ACT tests during the fall.

Advanced Placement (AP) Courses
Students can enroll in Advanced Placement (AP) courses beginning sophomore year. The college-level curriculum concludes with an end-of-year AP exam to earn college credit to most universities and colleges. Windsor offers AP courses in more than a dozen subjects and serves as a registered testing site for end-of-year exams.
