SKY Academy at YMCA of Southwest Florida

BrandStory

YMCA of Southwest Florida operates two A-rated, tuition free, public charter middle schools- SKY Academy, which stands for Strength and Knowledge at the YMCA. SKY Academy supports middle school students and their families by providing strong academics, healthy living and a supporting environment allowing children to thrive.  SKY Academy has the same standards as other public schools; it’s our approach that makes us unique. Subjects are studied through the lens of wellness.

SKY 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 students’ academic achievement, fitness and well-being. 

With schools in Venice and Englewood, YMCA of Southwest Florida is able to advance its mission to ensure every child has access to an education that promotes students’ overall well-being.  At SKY Academy, there is not only a focus on academics and physical activity, but also mental health and positive character development.  Students are provided opportunities to develop a further understanding of self and others.  This approach allows students to strengthen and develop their mental, physical, social and emotional health while achieving academic excellence.
