Director's Message,

I have a strong connection with students and education. I even taught some of my children at school and have always been passionate about learning and teaching. However, after 15+ years of working in the public school system, it was time for a change. I promised myself that I would eventually return to education and create a school that is free from limitations and political influence and prioritizes the future of its students.


Through my business experience as a corporate trainer, consultant, operations manager, and sales executive, I witnessed firsthand the significant disparities between the education system and the needs of the modern workforce. With the advent of COVID-19, chip evolution, climate change, and AI, our world has drastically changed. It's unfortunate that the public school system, charter schools, and common core curriculum are struggling to keep pace. 

Our team of professionals pooled our vast knowledge and experience to create the most innovative education structure currently available. We are an agile team that is always evolving to provide cutting-edge services to our students and their families while remaining affordable. 


We've deployed a highly experienced team to guide and teach our students and we are inviting you to join the Sky Academy learning community!


Our Mission = Your Child.
