Winston Preparatory School

Winston Preparatory School

Winston Preparatory School is an innovative day school for students in the 4th through 12th grade with learning differences such as dyslexia, nonverbal learning disabilities, and executive functioning difficulties. Our unique model of education for the individual provides intense skill remediation while encouraging students to build independence, resilience, responsibility, self-awareness, and self-advocacy. We do this through a process that understands each student, individualizes a program to meet their needs and continually refines this program based on individual progress, while building a powerful sense of community. We call this process the Continuous Feedback System. This system is designed to deeply understand each student’s specific learning profile, including their strengths and potential.

Gillen Brewer School

Gillen Brewer School

The Gillen Brewer School was founded in 1992 by Laura Bilicic and Laurie Dubos as a school for children with significant learning challenges. As special education teachers, they saw the overwhelming need for a school in New York City where families with children who have significant special needs would be welcomed, educated and supported. The founders believed that a knowledgeable and informed family was invaluable to each child’s overall education. To underscore the importance of family, the school was named after the founders’ grandmothers, Mattie Gillen and Virginia Brewer. The school opened in 1992 with one student and added classes until it reached 48 students from Pre-K through second grade. Forty-eight students were housed in what had once been the servants’ quarters of a stately mansion on Park Avenue. It soon became apparent that more room was needed, not only to accommodate more students, but also to house the ever expanding academic and therapeutic programs. In 2003, under the leadership of Board Chairman Henry B. Schacht and newly appointed Head of School, Donna Kennedy, the school began a search for a new location. In August 2005, the school moved to its current location at 410 East 92nd Street. The school currently has 88 students and 62 staff.

Saint Thomas Choir School

Saint Thomas Choir School

Small school. Big opportunity.

Surrounded by all the modern bustle in midtown Manhattan, we continue a centuries-old tradition of singing in a boy choir. As an intimate-sized school for grades 3-8, we offer world-class musical training, a challenging academic program complete with the latest technology, a wealth of extra-curricular enrichment, and a talented faculty who love to teach. Together we create a warm and nurturing environment for our students. The application process at Saint Thomas is need-blind, and substantial financial aid is available to eligible applicants. With our extensive placement assistance, most of our students go on to competitive high schools, often with good scholarships.

The students all sing as choristers with the Saint Thomas Choir of Men and Boys, considered by many to be the leading ensemble of its kind in the United States. The Choir performs regularly with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, or with the period instrument ensemble, Concert Royal, as part of its own concert series. Its primary raison d’être, however, is to provide music for five choral services each week. Supplementing its choral services and concert series over the past four decades, the Choir has toured throughout the U.S. and Europe with performances at Westminster Abbey and St. Paul’s Cathedral in London; King’s College, Cambridge; Windsor; Edinburgh; St. Albans; the Aldeburgh Festival and the Vatican.
