  • WINGS classes are designed for advanced/accelerated students, but all are welcome.
  • WINGS classes take place during the last two weeks of July.
  • WINGS classes run Monday through Thursday, but teachers must be available on Fridays in case of a power outage, inclement weather, etc.
  • WINGS classes are divided into different grade levels. Classes are designed for Kindergarten-1st grade, 2nd-3rd grade, 4th-5th grade, and/or 6th-7th grade.

  • WINGS teachers are not required to have a valid Michigan teaching certificate.
  • WINGS teachers must pass a background check.
  • WINGS teachers are required to attend a teacher orientation/training in June prior to WINGS.
  • WINGS teachers are paid a flat rate for designing, planning, and teaching classes.
