Director's Corner

Contact Director

Our first semester is wrapping up soon! It has been a very productive time in our schools as students make progress with their social and emotional learning and academic coursework!

As we embark on the winter months, we ask that you continue to monitor your child for any cold, flu or Covid symptoms. If your child is displaying any symptoms, please do not send them to school and notify us. Please help us keep our school and your families safe!

If we have inclement weather, there may be days that we conduct school through virtual learning. Parents will be contacted by our staff, and links will be sent out as soon as we have that information. We want to keep the students in a routine and continue moving forward with their learning, regardless of the weather. If you have any questions or specific needs pertaining to virtual learning please give the school a call and we will address these questions.

Thank you for partnering with KEYS Academy!

On December 2017, KEYS Academy-Charlottesville received word that they have been granted accreditation status through VAISEF, Virginia Association of Independent Special Education Facilities. This is a 5 year accreditation period. KEYS Academy-Charlottesville is also licensed through the VDOE. Congratulations, staff, on a job well done!
