Student Support

​​What would it look like if Winsor could afford to ensure access to all of our most extraordinary applicants? And what if we could support all students regardless of financial need through equitable access to the full Winsor experience, from sports and music lessons to global trips that no student should miss? We can’t wait to find out.

Faculty Excellence

We know how to attract and retain the highest caliber of faculty, who champion our girls from Classes I through VIII. It demands that we keep salaries high enough to accomplish two tasks: 1) compete fiercely with peer schools across the country for top talent, and 2) guarantee that our teachers can afford to live nearby. Your gift can help us lead the way.

The Winsor Fund

The cornerstone of philanthropy at Winsor, The Winsor Fund gives us the flexibility to meet budgetary needs as they arise. Collectively, gifts from $1 to $100,000 total an estimated $3.5 million per year, bridging the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating a student. No matter the size, every gift counts toward the Winsor Leads Campaign.

“This is a community that cares. Winsor students care deeply about their learning and connect every day with teachers who care just as deeply. Faculty work deliberately to empower students, and students here are eager to put their learning to good use.”

“Only at Winsor would an English teacher who had canceled her sophomore English class (because the students were going to be gone for the day on a field trip) get an email from those students to say that they’d be getting back in time for the last forty minutes of class. Could they please come to class?”

“Belonging is about accepting people for who they are and not what we want them to be. It’s about affirming people. That’s what we do at Winsor, create a space of affirmation and belonging so students can thrive.”

“Teaching our students to speak their minds, create powerful connections, and deepen their interests in a second language has been one of the most amazing gifts I have received and relished as an educator. Teaching them and learning with them is an experience second to none.”
