The mission of The Winston School San Antonio is to provide a personalized, college preparatory education for students with high potential and identified learning differences. A Winston School graduate is confident, well-rounded, and a life-long self-advocate.
What is a Learning Difference?
At Winston, we understand that everyone learns differently. Our positive, energetic faculty focus on providing an education that suits each individual student.
Winston students are bright, talented children and young adults who are diagnosed with a learning difference, which includes—but is not limited to—ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, and language disorders.
Our students come from a variety of backgrounds, but have one thing in common—they understand the feeling of being lost in a traditional education system.
Since its establishment in 1985, Winston has developed into a recognized institution for the education of students with learning differences. We feel that students learn best when their differences are understood and accommodated, which is why we focus on offering personalized instruction, multi-sensory teaching approaches, and organization strategies.

“I feel blessed to have found Winston. My son has blossomed and in many ways has been transformed into the person I always knew he could be. Winston helped to turn him into a great student which gave him the confidence to join Interact and play three sports. He is truly reaching his potential.”
-Steve, Dad of a Graduate
“As a supporter and trustee, I have seen the impact that Winston provides in education, support, and growth of children that have great mind and ability, but simply learn differently.”
-Brett, Board Member
“We finally have a place where our son “fits” and feels challenged, yet supported and encouraged! Winston embraces his different learning style and has helped me to parent differently to fit him!”
-Jeanne, Mom of a Middle Schooler
“Our son would not be graduating from Schreiner University next year if it hadn’t been for the caring, nurturing, and top rate education he received from Winston staff and faculty. Thank you!!”
-Theresa, Mom of a Graduate
In addition to our academic programs, Winston focuses on offering educational events for parents, educators, and other community members through our Winston Learning Series.
This five-event annual series features four free educational seminars throughout the year, with one large event each January, the Annual Learning Symposium. The Symposium attracts over 300 attendees each year, who gather to hear from nationally-recognized keynote lecturers and local learning difference experts.
