SKY Schools Teacher Training Academy

Invest in Yourself with the SKY Schools Teacher Certification Program​

SKY Schools Teacher Certification Program is open to those interested in learning to implement the evidence-based SKY Schools Curriculum for transforming school climate. 

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 Advanced Breathing (SKY) technique].

This dynamic intensive training is led by our team of experienced SKY Trainers with decades of teaching and practicing experience. Each one brings a wealth of experience from various backgrounds of education, counseling, non-profit, yoga for stress management, youth empowerment, diverse community engagement and more. However, collectively they share a passion for the upliftment and empowerment for young people to be the best version of themselves.
