SKY Schools Teacher Certification Program

Invest in Yourself with the SKY Schools Teacher Certification Program (TCP)
April 2022 - December 2022 (200 hrs)

SKY Schools Teacher Certification Program (TCP) is open to those interested in learning to implement the evidence-based SKY Schools Curriculum for transforming school climate. The Teacher Certification Program includes curriculum training for Youth (K-12), Educator & Parent Programs.

SKY provides tools for successful, stress-free living for students, teachers, parents and administrators.  School teachers are engaged, empowered and inspired to practice techniques of healthy living for themselves, so that they can share these transformative practices with youth to positively affect school climate and student performance.  The course focuses on managing stress in healthy ways through breathing and social-emotional learning processes which uplift human values such as responsibility, commitment, respect, etc. Teacher Training participants will learn to deliver the full course content of the SKY Schools Curriculum [not including the SKY Breathing Technique].


The SKY TCP training is a combination of online and in-person training starting April 16, 2022. Our renowned SKY Schools Faculty will mentor and evaluate you throughout the course. 

The curriculum includes adopting a daily personal SKY Breathing practice and participating in a community of practice.  You will be mentored and work in a cohort, practicing course delivery.  Your performance will be evaluated on a monthly basis.  The training will culminate at the SKY Schools Certification Retreat (4 days) held in Boone, North Carolina at the Art of Living Retreat Center. 

The SKY Schools TCP certification is delivered from April 2022 to December 2022.  Total time 200 hours.
