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.

SKY Schools provides tools for successful, stress-free living for students, teachers, parents and administrators.  SKY Schools 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 techniques and social-emotional learning processes which uplift human values such as responsibility, commitment, respect, etc. TCP participants will learn to deliver the course content of the SKY Schools K-12 Curriculum  [not including the SKY Breathing Technique]


The SKY Schools TCP training is a combination of online and in-person training. 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.
