W.I.N. Time

At the core of Gentry Academy’s ability to build great leaders is the philosophy that true leadership does not come from a single characteristic but rather a collection of traits, values and skills that work together. W.I.N. time is the natural extension of this belief.

W.I.N. time is a two-hour block that allows students to direct their own learning and lets them choose the areas in which they want to develop and master their skills. Students are given the freedom to use their W.I.N. time to develop strengths and leadership in all aspects of life. W.I.N. time is tailored to fit individual goals and can encompass both skill acquisition and enrichment.

We believe in treating and educating each student as a complete and unique individual. Students are provided with the freedom and structure they need to become the leader they want to be. Our instructors foster these goals by providing students with clear expectations of their performance and the support they need to be successful in all aspects of life. W.I.N. time is a unique chance for students to select the academic, athletic, art, and corporate and entrepreneurship opportunities that will most enrich their leadership and life skills.

W.I.N. time provides students with the freedom yet structure they need to become the leader they want to be. Gentry instructors foster these goals by providing students with clear expectations of their performance and the support they need to be successful in all aspects of life. W.I.N. time is a unique opportunity for students to select the academic, arts, athletic, corporate and entrepreneurship opportunity that will most enrich their leadership and life skills.
