SkyView Academy graduates excel

In their final hours as high school students, SkyView Academy graduates were left with one overarching message: don't be normal.

“What I want to talk to you about is how abnormal you are,” said high school principal Jon Ail. “You should be proud of that abnormality. Who wants to be normal?”

U.S. News and World Report ranked SkyView No. 24 in Colorado for its performance on state tests and college readiness. Seniors collected more than $5.8 million in scholarships.

The graduating class of 60 sat in rows of seats in the middle of the high school's expansive gymnasium in Highlands Ranch the rainy morning of May 19. As they listening to speakers, students laughed, clapped and cheered. They embodied the family that is SkyView Academy.

“That's one of the benefits of a small school, you get to know each other,” Ail said. “You are some of the greatest minds I have ever known. You are brilliant, you have high character, you are kind.”
