At Skyward Youth Aviation and Aerospace Academy, we believe in developing well-rounded students.


As such, our curriculum is focused on three core areas; learning, personal development, and activities.

 The Skyward Philosophy 



Skyward Youth Aviation and Aerospace Academy strives to provide unique programs for our students. Our curriculum and learning opportunities introduce students to the fields of aviation and aerospace using STEM-based standards.



We want our students to be successful in the classroom and in their personal development. We work with students to develop Individual Learning Goals and Intentions- allowing students to be better aware of their progress, while developing a foundation for setting (and achieving) goals in the future.



Learning takes place beyond textbooks. The Skyward Youth curriculum is enriched with activities, projects, and field trips. We are proud to offer our students access to state-of-the-art equipment and industry professionals.
