“It was a pleasure to meet and take the tour with Principal Worley. I also enjoyed the current parents interaction and information they relayed to us from a personal and academic perspective. I like the overall feeling of the school, and it was great to see the kids change periods and how Principal Worley knew all their names. SkyView Academy felt personable and the kids truly cared for. We look forward to the next steps in the process. Thank you!” – Prospective Parent on Middle School Tour.

Current Parents of SkyView Academy Students

“SkyView Academy was an obvious choice for our family.  After an unsettling school year, much research and many school tours, we fell in love with SkyView, it’s mission and Mrs. Worley.  When you come across something special and unique, it’s rare, which is exactly what SkyView and it’s 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 inpactful 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!!” – Amber, Parent of Middle School Student at SVA

 “I really wanted to find a more positive environment in a school that seemed to have a greater focus on stronger academics and real character building. When I compared a bunch of options within a commutable radius, and after touring and talking to a few different schools (Platte River, Ben Franklin Academy, SkyView Academy, and Agnus Dei, to name a few), my husband, kids and myself felt that SkyView Academy was the obvious best choice for us. A few of the important points for us: the academics are strong and kids are exposed to Spanish throughout elementary school; the middle school starts at 6th grade instead of 7th, offering more choices and electives that our 6th grade daughter was very excited to explore; and most importantly, there is an environment at the school which seems to truly foster kindness, respect and understanding among the kids. I also think that the parent commitment for volunteering their time every year sends the message to the kids that their parents care and are real participants in the community of their school. I know the school year is young (only about 3 weeks in so far), but my son, unprompted, mentioned to me last week, “Mom, I don’t think there are bullies at this school.”  And my daughter is coming home from school complimenting her teachers and very excited about going to Outdoor Education this upcoming week. This feels so positive and right for both of them that all I can say is, I’m so thankful we made this choice. Sure, it has had some challenges (adjusting to different hours and driving instead of walking to school) but regardless, we are very pleased and hopeful that both of our kids will thrive in the year ahead.  We are definitely off to a great start.” – Monique, Parent of Elementary & Middle School Students at SVA
