SKY Academy


SKY Academy is a free Sarasota County public middle school. Currently there are two SKY Academy locations, Venice and Englewood.  We are intrinsically associated with the YMCA, and we promote a culture of acceptance and inclusion among peers.  Our school is guided by the Y's core values: Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility.

As a Sarasota County Public Charter Middle School, SKY Academy follows the Florida Career & College Readiness Standards as all public schools do, but it’s our approach that makes us unique. Subjects are studied through the lens of wellness. Making healthy and positive choices will become routine for each student.  Whether your child is academically gifted or struggling, physically out of shape or a stellar athlete, his or her potential will sky rocket at SKY Academy.  SKY Academy is open to students from all surrounding counties.
