About SKY U

SKY U is a ‘university’ for kids, ages 7-to-12. Using a space-adventure theme and a universe of original cartoon characters, SKY U has captivated the imaginations of millions of children through its in-school programs and live multi-media events. It’s premier program, The SKY U Quest For Excellence, was launched in 2005-2006 in New York City. It continues in New York and other cities as more and more children, parents, and educators join the SKY U Quest to Excel. Over 7 million children, parents and teachers have already experienced the power of SKYSHAPERS University programs.

‘Excellence’ is unfortunately becoming a rare thing these days. In these fast-paced times of airlines charging for ‘extras’ that used to be free, not enough care and too much ‘fast’ in the food, oil and resource guzzling, a groundswell movement of people is coming together to take a stand for excellence. The greatest movements in history have started with the young. Join today’s young people who are awakening their Spirit To Excel. Visit and be part of The Quest!

Based on over a decade of research into how children learn, over 7.5 million children, ages 7-to-12, in more than 10,000 schools across America have experienced the SKY U core curriculum and programs.

Ellie DylanThe Founder and President of SKY U is Ellie Dylan, the driving force behind the SKY U brand. As the former host/producer of an Emmy Award-winning, number-one-rated television series for ABC-TV and as the most-listened-to female radio host in America on NBC, Dylan has been featured by The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, People Magazine, and The Today Show for her accessible, innovative brand of media.

In 1985, Dylan realized that children were facing challenges unlike any in history. Determined to find a way to equip children with the tools they need to succeed, Dylan spent over a decade working with educators and child development specialists.

Dylan established SKY U to provide children at all points on the socio-economic spectrum with The Missing Link in their education: the skills to awaken the Spirit of Excellence inside of them so they can use it to excel academically in school and in every aspect of life.

The premier SKY U program, The Quest For Excellence, equips young people with the motivation and skills to:

  • Achieve better grades and test scores
  • Become more focused and organized
  • Be accountable for the results they produce
  • Improve communication and cooperation
  • Maintain a positive ‘can do’ attitude
  • Live their highest potential
