About Sky Academy
Our obsession at Sky Academy is Mathematics Education. To provide that expertise to those who value, desire and seek it the most. It is well documented that there is an overall decline in our country, as well as globally, in numeracy and the level of interest in Mathematics by students in our schooling systems. We are really concerned with the growing trend of students who opt out of advanced Mathematics courses in their senior years and are committed to reversing this trend.
Sky Academy recognizes that the world is changing far too rapidly. Many are the obstacles young people face today that hinder the engagement and dedication to learning Mathematics .
On the flip side, our modern world presents abundant opportunities for those who embrace it for innovation in the education space.
In this respect, Sky Academy is committed to new and cutting edge paradigm shifts in the delivery of Mathematics education. This, coupled with the best of tried and tested approaches to traditional education, is the answer to preparing young minds with the support and momentum they need to be masters of a brave new global, ever progressing, fast paced, technology-saturated 21st century environment.
THE CENTRAL QUESTION
At Sky Academy, we understand the greater drive that motivates our clients in taking higher level senior Mathematics courses. We hear time and time again parents asking: “How do we provide our child with the best opportunities for a better life and a better future after the HSC?” This central agenda has shaped our mission, vision and philosophy. Our products and services are crafted to cater to your needs.
To see every Mathematics student doing the HSC achieve their dream marks and develop to their potential, with sufficient meaningful and cutting edge support.
To empower every Mathematics student to access the widest range of opportunities for the future beyond the HSC and be thoroughly equipped to take advantage of them.
To create, deliver and promote highly effective Mathematics specific programs and products that facilitate deeper understanding, upskill our users for optimal proficiency in Mathematics, to create unparalleled success that leads to growth in confidence, enthusiasm and the cultivation of winning habits and a champion mindset for mastery of the modern world.
Some things change and some stay the same. And often the most effective way to address an issue is to have the awareness to know what needs to change and what is better left untouched.
At Sky Academy we recognise that this applies especially to the current landscape of 21st Century education and specifically to teaching Mathematics.
One thing that doesn’t change about Maths Education is that what it takes to succeed is a commitment to mastery. There are no quick fixes, no silver bullets, no shortcuts. Each mathematical concept needs to be laid down like a well placed, well secured brick in a building and tested and tested until it sets solid. If there are too many missing loose or misplaced bricks, the integrity of the building is compromised and it collapses in a heap of rubble, unable to rise to the heights of its potential. This happens all too often.
Sky Academy is founded and has its legacy dedicated to this commitment to mastery. The process of mastery works and it is timeless. And our method is successful only because we honour this immovable truth uncompromisingly.
On the other hand, there is enormous potential for innovation. We live in a world that is changing at an unprecedented pace and the relevance of otherwise stale and meaningless number facts and formulae, need constant and adequate re-contextualisation, for increasingly distracted school students to engage meaningfully with mysterious Mathematical world that they often don’t understand and cant see the relevance of.
As a representative of the modern teaching profession, this is our greatest challenge, and we are really just at the tip of the iceberg to this enormous shift. And while we don’t purport to have all the answers, our philosophy and mission is to embrace the vast resources and possibilities that exist to create new paradigms of educational delivery to serve the future generations with skills to master the modern world through Mathematics.
If any of this resonates with educators, students and parents alike, we at Sky Academy would love to connect with like minded partners to explore the possibilities of how we can engage in addressing these challenges at least for the students in your care.
