Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!

A new school year is upon us! I am very excited to be welcoming back previous students and meeting new students this year. We have completed our downstairs renovations and will be able to occupy that space the beginning of this school year! We are excited to have more room for various activities and classrooms.

We have several staff returning this year and I am excited to announce some new staff that have come aboard for this school year. This is my 5th year as Director of KEYS Academy-Charlottesville, and I absolutely love working with each student! I look forward to many more years of working with this awesome community, these wonderful kids, and their parents and guardians.

Our staff here at KEYS Academy dedicates so much of themselves to help all our students achieve and make positive steps towards their Big Life. The KEYS Academy- Charlottesville team is excited to greet old faces and meet new ones!

I hope you all had an enjoyable summer, and I look forward to talking with you all soon.

Janna Kincaid, M.Ed., Director
