High School Student Leadership

SkyView Academy believes all students can be leaders. Sometimes, leadership is mistaken for the loudest or most confident voice in the room. However, research and experience reveals that productive and effective leadership also requires organizational skills, the ability to listen, the capacity to reflect, commitment, etc. We offer students different avenues to discover their best selves through the following programs: 

Middle School Mentoring


Students are trained in relevant, targeted tutoring skills, stressing the importance of learning and implementing the code of ethics, and fosters a professional attitude in tutoring services, and is applicable across disciplines. Students will learn tutoring ‘best practices’ including: understanding tutoring procedures, steps for successful tutoring sessions, questioning techniques, listening skills, tutorial responsibilities and ethics, using praise effectively, verbal and nonverbal communication skills, critical thinking skills and learning preferences. Interested students should contact Mrs. Schuman at kschuman@svak12.org.

National Honor Society (NHS)

NHS is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.

Students in their Junior and Senior year who earn and maintain a GPA of 3.75 or higher are eligible. Sophomore students will receive invitations to participate in NHS during the Spring semester.

Spirit Squad


In conjunction with Student Council students can self-select to participate in Spirit Squad. This student group organizes special events to unite students in their senior year. Events are coordinated and facilitated entirely by students with adult support. As students rise into higher grade levels, classes coordinate more events. Past senior class events include back-to-school pool party, lock-ins, and senior trip. Students develop leadership skills by planning, doing and reflecting. These students play a unique role in how students experience senior year. Interested students should contact the High School Office. Interested student, please contact Mr. Lenderink tlenderink@svak12.org.

Student Council


Elected students convene weekly to discuss common concerns, organize events, make decisions and solve school related problems. Students typically focus on social related events that help unite the school in a positive way. Examples of events include school dances, assemblies, pep rallies, homecoming and spirit days. Participating students have the opportunity to affect how the average student feels about high school and earn community service hours. Interested students should contact Mr. Bridgham at cbridgham@svak12.org.
