THE SKYBRIDGE CULTUREWe are delighted that you have chosen Skybridge Academy and are committed to creatingan environment in which learning is sacred and everyone is committed to personalexcellence. While our intellectual program is highly personalized, we must share universalnorms of respectful behavior in order to maintain an environment in which excellence ispursued vigorously by all of our students.
Our selective admissions process ensures that we have highly functioning, autonomous,compassionate, intellectually curious students. The smooth operation of our schoolrequires that everyone in our community needs to feel profoundly safe and secure,allowing us to be vulnerable with each other. Therefore each learner and both parentsmust be responsible for managing the energy that they bring to our community.Our general adult standard of behavior is based on that of the adult, creative class inAustin at the office. Even in a casual business environment, it is still a businessenvironment, and professionals know that their careers are at stake and thus want to betaken seriously.
Thus, behavioral standards are determined by asking, “What behaviors would typicallyresult in a loss of respect and credibility in the professional creative setting?” If studentsbehave in a manner that is inappropriate to a creative office setting in Austin, the specificbehavior that would result in a loss of respect and credibility will be pointed out to them.Smoking, alcohol, illegal drugs, and pornography are not allowed at the school at any timeand are grounds for immediate and permanent dismissal.
