Who We Are

Skyline Academy is an intensive day treatment facility for students in 1st – 8th grades. We serve students that have struggled in traditional public school settings as a result of:

  • Behaviors
  • Strong emotions
  • Peer relationships
  • Trauma
  • Identified educational disabilities

We help students and families identify what they need to be as successful as they can be, both in and outside of school.

Our Values

We strongly believe that students learn when they are understood, accepted and when they feel safe at school. All Skyline students have strengths and grow through educational, social-emotional learning and therapeutic interventions.

We apply research-based treatment models that emphasize character development, social skills and functional ways to express strong feelings.

We partner with families and our goal is always for students to learn the skills that they need and return to their home school district for the long-term.

Skyline Academy is licensed as an Approved Facility School through the Colorado Department of Education. We are also licensed as a Day Treatment facility through the Colorado Office of Children, Youth and Families – Division of Child Welfare.
