Using skydiving as a tool, Sky High Scholars teaches students that limits are only set by the restrictions we impose on ourselves. Once we understand that anything is possible, our options become limitless and the world is completely open to any possibility. The foundations for your dreams begin here, two miles above the earth.
We never teach anyone to ignore their feelings or that they should not be afraid in the midst of a challenging event. Instead, recognize the feeling and act correctly in spite of emotions that commonly inhibit peak performance or prevent us from achieving lofty goals.
Classes are taught on your campus, in any facility that will provide adequate seating, electronic presentation, and a learning environment suitable for any collegiate class. We also secure an off campus jump site to apply what you have learn with a live jump.
After experiencing an awakening to the simple fact that our limits are learned and prevent us from self-actualization, it was clear to that others needed to learn that they can achieve anything in school and life the goals to which they apply and dedicate themselves.
Through a series of three sequential classes on campus, followed by a short training session at the skydiving center, students are taught a range of activities to achieve their goals not only in this class but other life challenging events. Few classes have such an impact.
Students benefit through real life experience in high-stress situations similar to taking tests, job interviews, or simply overcoming fears and limits set through learned helplessness. Growing to understand that limits are only there in our minds, students set higher goals and achieve with a greater sense of confidence. Colleges boast of greater curriculum range, higher FTE funding, and a stronger graduating class of students. Building a reputation as a strong school is critical for attracting stronger applicants and faculty.
