Englewood SKY Academy
In 2011, the SKY Family YMCA launched a new, unique charter middle school in Venice, 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. The popularity of the Venice middle school among local families paved the way for a second location of SKY Academy to be established in Englewood in 2015. Englewood SKY Academy is now a fully established, successful middle school on the Sarasota County side of Englewood, FL.
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 are 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.
