Facilities

Comfortably settled on the south side of the building, the preschool enjoys the perks of a well rounded school experience, taking the whole child into consideration. They demonstrate their love for outdoor play on the beautifully manicured turf field and well-maintained preschool playground. Their creativity shines through the artwork displayed in the hallways. Though the cafetorium is shared with the elementary school students enjoy separate lunch periods. The library offers both a variety of literary genres and a quiet study area for after school use. Individual, full-length cubbies allow students a space to call their own.

Curriculum

SkyView Academy engages student learning through the use of the Core Knowledge Curriculum founded by E.D. Hirsch. Its unique structure connects student learning in a cohesive manner while developing critical thinking that is age appropriate. Additionally, it prepares students for the rigorous classical education found within the walls of our high school. While it aligns with Common Core standards and Colorado State Academic Standards for preschool, Core Knowledge demonstrates that students can exceed the state standards of education while developing a strong educational foundation. Additionally, our preschool program utilizes Get Set For School by Handwriting Without Tears as our handwriting curriculum. Through this curriculum, students work on developing fine motor skills and strength in their hands to best prepare them for writing and other pre-literacy skills. Students PK through grade 8 learn Spanish. Another key element of SkyView Academy’s curriculum is its focus on service learning. Students engage in opportunities that allow them to give back to the community.

Transportation

Families transport their students to and from school, many forming carpools either on their own or through the WaytoGo program.
