High School & College Career Counseling

At SkyView Academy we offer a holistic approach to counseling. Students have the same counselor throughout their entire high school experience which allows us to develop deep, meaningful relationships with students and to know them both academically and socially. We believe this benefits students as it consistently leads to increased attention, care, and success while supporting our vision and mission.

What You Can Expect From Us

We are Here to Improve the Lives of our Students

The national average of a student to counselor ratio is approximately 470-1. The recommended average by the American School Counselor Association is 250-1. We offer a 250-1 ratio so if a student needs support we are here for them. SVA also has a College & Career Counselor who is here to help with all of your questions when it comes to the College application process, looking for scholarships, and applying for Financial Aid. 

College Counseling

As a college preparatory school, we are committed to helping students and parents/guardians with college planning. Our curriculum is designed to meet college admissions requirements so our students can pursue the college of their choice that best fits their goals and prepare for life beyond high school.  Please see the High School Yearly Planning Guide for more information.

SVA Concurrent Enrollment

SVA CE Courses (Note: All CE courses are subject to cancellation):

    • ACC-ENG 0092 Composition & Reading (0 College Credit Hours) will be taught in the Fall semester to prepare students for ACC-ENG 1021 in the Spring semester
    • For students that are struggling with their English skills, it is recommended that students start with ACC-ENG 0092. After that, they can take ACC-ENG 1021 with a corequisite class called ACC-ENG 0094 Studio 1021.
  2. Apply to ACC and Authorize the College Opportunity Fund (COF) with Mrs. Kamman
  3. After you complete ANY CE course through ACC you will have an official record with ACC. If you earn a C or better in a CE course, you will earn College Credit. Because of this, you will now have an official record (a transcript) with ACC. It will be your responsibility to request an Official Transcript from ACC when you begin to apply for College. Go to ACC Records & Enrollment Services to request your transcript.

NOTE: You will need your S# to request your ACC transcript. 

If you have any questions, please speak to Mrs. Kamman, Concurrent Enrollment (CE) Coordinator.

Students

We begin our work with students in their freshman and sophomore years with career exploration. Juniors are provided focused workshops on topics such as college searches, creating an initial interest list, letters of recommendation, and college essay writing. We also connect students to SAT prep courses during the spring of their junior year. Senior year workshops include narrowing the college list, how/when to apply to colleges, supplemental essay writing, Common Application, and scholarship search. The College and Career Counselor meets with each student to discuss college readiness and we encourage students to stop by anytime. Asking questions is a great thing!

Workshop sessions are supplemented with college visits. Individual colleges are scheduled to speak to interested students in a small group setting. In addition, our counselors organize a College Fair each fall, inviting colleges from across the country that our students have expressed interest in applying to. Finally, we offer day trips to nearby colleges where students have an opportunity to take a tour, meet admission representatives, observe, campus/college life, and learn more about what each college offers.

Parents/Guardians

Parent/guardian workshops offer support throughout the year. Workshop topics include an introduction to the college process, financial aid, Naviance access (a comprehensive college and career readiness solution that helps align student strengths and interests to post-secondary goals), and the college search. We encourage parents to email, call or schedule in-person or online Zoom appointments to discuss their child’s progress or to answer any general questions.
