The Lloyd Harvey Hatch Center for Learning Strategies

A compelling suite of solutions and support for high school students who have significant unrealized potential and who are ready to get on track to greater success in school and college.

The Lloyd Harvey Hatch Center Commitment

Our commitment to support students with different learning styles, challenges and profiles has been the cornerstone of the School since its founding by Lloyd Harvey Hatch nearly 100 years ago.  The training, mentoring, advocacy and support provided to them through the Hatch Center programs propel them to become confident, independent learners, and empower them through their years at Winchendon, college and beyond.  Developing confidence and self-esteem are integral to their success.


Our Philosophy

The programs offered through the Hatch Center provide an individually designed path for students to achieve independent academic success. A common goal for all students in these programs is to transition out of the program over their time at the School as they become confident, independent, self-directed learners.

Our two locations share the same teaching philosophy thereby ensuring students can easily move from one campus to the other for ColLABs or a semester in the New England countryside. 

We are very impressed by the level of attention our child has been receiving thus far. We are already seeing results. Our child's confidence seems to be returning and the overall mood has improved. Moreover, we see more personal responsibility and effort in keeping up with class assignments where previously our child appeared to have all but given up.

We've worked in many different independent schools in our careers, and the approach to supporting and challenging all students at The Winchendon School is unparalleled. All of our teachers, and those that support them, know that each and every one of our students can not only do well, but can thrive and excel given consistency and positivity.
