New Year’s Director’s Wrap-Up: 2020

We are excited to welcome back all students, parents, and partners as we begin this Spring semester of 2020. KEYS Academy-Culpeper staff has worked diligently to start this grading period with a renewed focus on integrating the KEYS for a Big Life curriculum in with the Social Thinking curriculum to maximize benefits for our students. This period immediately following the Winter break can be difficult for students after being away from school and out of routines for multiple weeks. Helping them to focus on their social/emotional well-being assists them in returning to school and getting back on track in order to continue meeting their academic and behavioral goals.

We are very proud to announce that we had two of our seniors go above and beyond last semester in their goal of completing graduation requirements early. They both graduated in December of 2019. Our high school staff has already started to remediate for standardized assessments (SOL’s/Work Keys) that our current term graduates will need as part of their graduation requirements. We will begin testing for our term graduates as early as the last week in January.

KEYS Academy-Culpeper strictly follows the Culpeper County Public Schools schedule as it pertains to school closings and/or delays. Therefore, in the event of inclement weather, please consult the Culpeper County Public Schools schedule for that particular day.
