Online and offline study
There are two ways of studying at Sky School:
1. Online only
Any student, wherever they are in the world, will be able to take courses on the Sky School online platform. Lessons and assignments on the platform are given by some of the best teachers from schools around the world. Lessons can be accessed at any time, to allow for flexible study. You will be able to access the courses on your phone, and engage online with your fellow students, as well as receive guidance and support from our online facilitators
2. Online and in person
If you live in a location where there is a Sky School Hub you will be able to study both online and in person:
As well as studying online, at the Sky School learning Hub you will be able to:
Access devices (for example computers and tablets)
Meet up with classmates in person and conduct team-based activities and projects
Be supported by a team leader who will guide and support you in your studies.
In our pilot phase, there will be learning hubs in Amman, Jordan, Athens, Greece and Kakuma, Kenya. As the programme expands Sky School hubs will be set up in other locations. If you are interested in setting up a hub, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org

Language of study
Our aspiration is to create a bilingual diploma with courses in a number of different languages so that students from all areas of the world can access them. During our protoyping stage, our initial course will take place in English and all course materials will be in English, but other languages will be spoken in the on-site learning hubs.
The Sky School Diploma programme will be modular - and once a student has completed a certain number of modules, they will be able to receive the Sky School Diploma. We will be convening a curriculum group to map out the overarching structure of the curriculum from January 2017.
