The Voices of our Alumni



The Windward School strictly adheres to its mission of remediating children with language based learning disabilities in preparation for their successful return to the mainstream.  Through a thoughtful and comprehensive screening process, the Admissions Committee is able to offer a limited number of seats to applicants that would benefit from the program.  Windward’s admissions process is intentionally thorough because it is a very serious decision to take children out of the mainstream and enroll them in a special needs school.

The criteria for admissions are the following:

      • written diagnosis of a language-based learning disability
      • average to superior intellectual potential
      • no behavioral or emotional problems that would interfere with the instructional program


       To register for an Information Session, complete The Windward School Online Inquiry form.  Once this form is completed and submitted, an application will be sent to you. Weekly Information Sessions include a tour of the school, but attendance is not necessary for an application to be filed. 

       Geographically, Windward students come from the tri-state metropolitan area, including New York City, Long Island, Westchester and Rockland counties, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

       The Windward School is not a state funded school, so need-based financial aid is available for families.

       The Windward School does not discriminate in admissions, employment, or administration of programs on the basis of any category protected by applicable law.
