SkyView Academy is a Preschool through 12th grade public charter school located in Highlands Ranch, a southern suburb of Denver, CO. We are the only school in the Douglas County School District providing an outstanding education under one roof, beginning with our youngest learners in preschool at age 3 through high school graduation.
“SkyView Academy was an obvious choice for our family. We fell in love with the school, its mission and the K-8 principal, Janet Worley. When you come across something special and unique, it’s rare, which is exactly what SkyView and its staff is, rare in the best way! We were looking for a great education in a safe environment with an opportunity to learn at our children’s individualized levels of challenge while feeling support from influential, impactful teachers and staff. SkyView has been that and so much more, definitely one of the best choices we have made for our boys! They are thriving in academics, sports, social relationships and they love school again!” – SkyView parent, Amber Wiers

How Open Enrollment Works
For parents who wish to keep their student in their current school, or new families who wish for their students to attend their assigned neighborhood school: No action is needed. Open enrollment is only for families that wish to move their student to a school that is different than their assigned neighborhood school. DCSD parents will use their parent portal log in information to access their student information through open enrollment. First-time to DCSD parents will create an account to log in. IF you have set up an account before, but have forgotten your password, please contact DCSD IT department (303-387-0001) for instructions to reset your password. Creating another account will duplicate your information in our system.
First round open enrollment is not first-come, first-served; Enrollment priority is given during this round; you have until December 2nd @ 4 pm to complete this process. A confirmation email will be sent to you after your request has been submitted (if you select the button to request the email). You will receive an email from DCSD and/or SkyView after December 10th. You can also log back into the Open Enrollment Tool (EngagED Parent Portal) on or after December 11th to check your status. You have until December 18th at 4:00 pm to accept our open enrollment offer through the Open Enrollment Tool (EngagED Parent Portal). You MUST accept through the Open Enrollment tool.
If your application is not accepted by SkyView, or you didn’t log in and accept your offer, you will automatically be placed on the second round open enrollment list. Second round open enrollment is “first-come, first-served.” Students will be placed on the waitlist behind those that are currently on the wait list from first round. During second round open enrollment schools will reach out to you as space becomes available.
