August 2018,

It is hard to believe that the 2018-19 school year has already started! Our students entered refreshed and excited to continue working towards their BIG LIFE with a renewed focus on academics and a commitment to capitalize on the POWER OF THE GROUP.

KEYS Academy-Culpeper had a fun and successful Extended School Year (ESY) this summer. The theme of our ESY program was Perspective Taking. Our Social Thinking curriculum along with this focus on perspective taking has been beneficial to our students throughout the summer as it has taught them about the presence of other people’s minds, bodies and thoughts as it pertains to their own actions and behaviors.

KEYS Academy-Culpeper finished this past school year with a focus on KEY #7 “Safety, Dignity & Direction”. This final key is of particular importance as it attempts to teach our students how to make productive actions or “power actions” in order to meet their goals and overcome challenges in the school setting.

We look forward to another exciting and rewarding year. Thank you for partnering with us!
