New Beginnings for KEYS Academy-Caroline!

We so excited to be serving students at our newest facility in Caroline County, and I am look forward to serving as your Director. Our staff have been working diligently these past few weeks getting our beautiful building ready for our new students!!

We welcome students from a variety of school divisions in the central Virginia area. Even though our facility is in Caroline County, we offer the same blended learning model [an integration of the KEYS for a Big Life curriculum with the Social Thinking curriculum] like our other KEYS Academy schools.

We are excited to not only bring the community a new school with highly qualified staff and advanced technology…but also the security of knowing that we keep safety as a number one priority, especially during these challenging times. Our school will be strictly following all COVID procedures to ensure that your student has a safe and secure environment to access the curriculum and focus on their social/emotional well-being.

Starting this school year, most of our students will attend 2 days in person, and 3 days through remote learning. We look forward to serving our students on August 10th with the following schedule listed below:

  • Monday: A day
  • Tuesday: B day
  • Wednesday: Remote Learning from Home for all students
  • Thursday: A day
  • Friday: B day

We can’t wait to meet you all!!
