CYBERSKY is an educational brand, under the parent company STAIRS ACADEMY, that symbolizes all things in the digital world, including stories, photos, art, music, film, television, radio, podcasts, distance learning, online gaming and more.

The Cybersky website was first launched as a teacher page by Musician, Educator & Technologist Graeme “Mr. Cybersky” Sibirsky, as a place to post his students’ songs, photos and videos. Later, it was reimagined as a video channel for educational tutorials, interviews, documentaries and podcasts, about a range of topics, including technology, education, health, fitness, martial arts and Rubik’s Cube strategies.

School Design

School Designs

While there are currently, no charters being issued in New York City, Stairs Academy has a charter school proposal, which it hopes to file with the SUNY Charter Schools Committee, when the charter cap in NYC is lifted. Click to learn more about our Charter School Proposal.     Until disrupted by the Covid-19 outbreak, Stairs Academy was working in partnership with the NYC Department of Education on an innovative public school design, through Imagine NYC Schools. We look forward to picking up this work once the Covid-19 crisis has been mitigated.
