SKY Academy ~ A Tuition-Free Sarasota Public Charter Middle School
WE WILL CONTINUE ACCEPTING 2013/2014 REGISTRATION APPLICATIONS AND WILL HAVE A SECOND ROUND OF NOTIFICATIONS.
In 2011, the YMCA of Southwest Florida launched a new, unique charter middle school in Sarasota County, Florida – SKY Academy, which stands for Strength and Knowledge at the YMCA. The Academy’s focus is based on research that proves physical activity builds and conditions the brain for learning. In fact, schools around the nation using this philosophy have shown outstanding results in student achievement, fitness and well being. View our Brochure!
As a tuition-free, Sarasota public charter middle school, SKY Academy has the same standards as the other public schools; it’s our approach that makes us unique. Subjects will be studied through the lens of wellness and we use Executive Functioning to help students stay on task. Making healthy and positive choices will become routine for each student.
