"Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving."

"Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions."

"The important thing is not to stop questioning."

"If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales."

Our Mission

Our mission at Wing Academy is to foster
whole-child development – physical, mental, emotional, and social – in a safe and nurturing environment. Simultaneously, we impart essential life skills and foster confident individuals, ready to succeed in a rapidly changing world.

Years of

"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge."

"There can be no great discoveries and advances as long as there is one unhappy child on earth."

"The value of an education in a liberal arts college is not the learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think something that cannot be learned from textbooks."

"The only source of knowledge is experience."

"The aim of education must be the training of independently acting and thinking individuals who, however, can see in the service to the community their highest life achievement."

"Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding."

It's not always easy being a kid, but it's clear WingKids is nurturing in him a grounded confidence, both mentally and physically. This is something that can't be given, but learned through training, and something many adults aspire to for themselves."

"I signed my son up for WingKids because I was looking to boost his self-confidence and his self defense skills. We continue to sign up again and again because he's happy to go week after week. Because of WingKids, he is better able to assess risk to his person, his physical skills are improving, he is highly motivated towards getting new belts, his confidence has increased, and he is clearly having fun."
Gillian S.
"I am very grateful for all that my son has learned so far and the confidence that comes with that."

"This was a great opportunity. My daughter loved that she got to participate in a sport her Brothers are in. Its always hard when she wants to sign up for something they are in but does not accommodate special needs. From the waiting room I could hear how amazing the coaches were. I really appreciate Wingkids for giving her this opportunity!"
Kristine M.
"Björn and Carina are amazing communicators with the kids, which is the highlight of our daughter's week. She's discovering newfound confidence in herself and eagerly shares the new skills she learns each week. We've struggled to find an activity that truly captures her interest, but we can confidently say that WingKids is the one."
Tony M.
