Skyline Collegiate Academy is designed to admit incoming ninth-graders including, but not limited to students who are:
- Determined to attend college.
- First Generation college students.
- Historically underrepresented in higher education
The academy will accept up to 125 ninth-grade students per year through:
A performance-blind, open-access lottery system that encourages and considers applications from all students (so that all students have equal opportunity for acceptance, regardless of background or academic performance).
A weighted lottery that favors students who are at risk or who are part of the targeted subpopulations for the ECHS.
Students will move together as a cohort as they progress through high school.
Students will attend ninth and tenth grade at Skyline High School in a dedicated wing of the building. For their junior and senior years, students will attend classes on the Cedar Valley College campus. Transportation will be provided at no charge.
