 Frequently Asked Questions

Why can’t I find an Intent to Enroll form on SVA’s website?

For the 2017 - 2018 school year, SVA will be participating in DCSD Open Enrollment. Additional information can be found on the Enrollment page of our website, including links to Open Enrollment.

If my child does not get into SkyView Academy this year, do I have to go through the Open Enrollment process next year?

Yes. Please visit the DCSD Open Enrollment web page.

We are an out of district family, does that make a difference in our enrollment priority?

No. SkyView does not give preferences for in or out of district families.

When will I be notified as to which schools have a spot for my child?

SkyView will send you an email to offer you an open enrollment slot, based on space availability. You can also log back into the Open Enrollment Tool to check your status. For information regarding your student’s wait list status, please send a request after March 1st to enrollment@svak12.org.

 

Does SkyView offer a half-day Kindergarten program?

No. We only offer full-day Kindergarten. We feel that our program complete with the Core Knowledge scope and sequence lends itself to better preparing our students for the rigors of our PK-12 model. A full day allows our teachers to move further along in the curriculum thus better preparing our students for 1st grade and beyond including having classroom time for our “pillars” which include character education and daily taught Spanish in addition to various service learning opportunities.

How old does my child need to be to enter Kindergarten?

We follow Douglas County School District (DCSD) guidelines which state that “eligible children must by 5 by October 1st” of the year in which they apply for Kindergarten.

Why is the Kindergarten program tuition-based?

The State of Colorado funds half-day Kindergarten programs. In order to provide staff and high quality services we, like most other full-day Kindergarten programs in Colorado, charge tuition for the portion that the State does not fund. There are flexible payment plan options which can be put in place to help families who may not qualify for federal assistance, but need flexibility when paying tuition. Please contact our business office for more information.

If my child attends preschool at SkyView does it guarantee admission into the Kindergarten program?

All SkyView PK 4-year old students that meet the age requirements for Kindergarten, are now automatically enrolled (as space is available) in Kindergarten at SkyView if they so choose.
