Skyuka Hall Announces They Are Officially A K-12 School

Monday, February 12, 2018

Skyuka Hall, the only Chattanooga-based independent school exclusively providing individualized learning experiences for students with learning differences, has announced that they are now officially a K-12 school. The school, which currently enrolls 83 students from first through tenth grade, made the decision to move to a K-12 school to ensure that their students can continue their successes in preparation for college and career.   

Skyuka Hall, which has been recognized as one of the fastest growing schools in Tennessee, has grown from eight to 83 students in four years. Their success in individualized learning is supported by a student to teacher ratio of 8:1 in the classroom which allows each student’s unique set of challenges to be met utilizing a customized curriculum which meets their individual needs, said officials. 

Dr. Josh Yother, head of school at Skyuka Hall, said, “we exist to provide a non-traditional, accredited setting where students who learn differently can thrive, just as they are, right where they are, with confidence, courage, and conviction.  Now, with over three years of relentless pursuit, we can confidently say Skyuka Hall is preparing students for a state-licensed high school diploma, dually accredited by the Southern Association of Independent Schools and AdvancED, and success in their future endeavors.”
