Frequently Asked Questions

How do I learn more about SkyView’s programs?

School virtual events are offered monthly. Please check the “Visit SkyView” link for more information.

We are an out of district family, does that make a difference in our enrollment priority?

No. SkyView does not give preferences for in or out of district families.

How many students are in each grade?

Kindergarten: 20:1 student/teacher ratio with 100 students overall

1st – 5th grade: 26:1; with 104 students per grade level

6th – 8th grade: ratio varies depending on class; 118 students per grade level

9th – 12th grade: approximately 15:1 student/teacher ratio; 125 students maximum per grade level

Does SkyView offer a half-day Kindergarten program?

SkyView Academy only offers a full-day kindergarten program as we feel this best prepares our young learners for the rigor of our K-12 program. This is a non-tuition-based program as funding was approved in the spring of 2019 from the State.

How old does my child need to be to enter Kindergarten?

We follow DCSD guidelines which state that “eligible children must be 5 by October 1st” of the year in which they will be enrolled for Kindergarten. For 2021-22, students must be five by 10/1/2021. If you feel your child would benefit from entering Kindergarten a year early, please apply for Early Access Admission through DCSD’s Gifted Education department.

If my child attends preschool at SkyView does it guarantee admission into the Kindergarten program?

All SkyView Preschool 4-year old students that meet the age requirements for Kindergarten, are now automatically enrolled (as space is available) in Kindergarten at SkyView if they so choose.

When will I be notified if SkyView has a spot for my child?

During the first round, parents can log in to EngagED parent portal to view school offers. During the second round, SkyView will send an email to offer your student an open enrollment spot, based on space availability. 

What number is my child on the waitlist?

For information regarding your student’s wait list status, please send a request to enrollment@svak12.org.

One child received an offer, but the other did not. What now?

Siblings of enrolled students who have not received an offer by May 1st are automatically placed at the top of our waitlist, per our Enrollment policy. We do our best to accommodate siblings when openings arise.

If my child does not get into SkyView Academy Charter School this year, do I have to go through the Open Enrollment process next year?

Yes. The First round of Open Enrollment begins November 1st  at 8:00 am for the following school year.

Who do I contact to schedule a tour for charter school enrollment?

Unfortunately, for school year 20-21, we are unable to offer in-person tours due to COVID protocol requirements. SVA does offer live Q&A sessions so families can get their questions answered from our administration.  These are offered the first Wednesday of every month. Register here: Q&A Registration.

Elementary sessions begin at 9:00 a.m.

Middle school sessions begin at 9:30 a.m.

High school sessions begin at 10:00 a.m.

Preschool tours are done by request. Please request a tour here: Schedule a Visit

Who do I contact to schedule a shadow day for my prospective high school student?

We recognize the importance of getting a glimpse into high school life at SkyView for prospective high school students interested in attending our school. Please complete the online form.

How do I transfer my high school student to/from SkyView during the current school year?

We encourage high school students who desire to switch schools in the middle of a semester/year to carefully consider the reasons they are seeking a transfer.  Please contact our counselor, Mr. Lenderink, with questions and more information.

Is there bus transportation?

SkyView does not offer bus transportation. Parents are encouraged to carpool with other families. Way To Go is a free service that matches families living near one another so individuals may make contact prior to the beginning of the school year to set up a carpool schedule. Families are automatically opted in to Way To Go unless they contact us to be removed from the list. Please note that being opted in does not require a family to participate in a carpool, it just makes the information available to you.
