Welcome Back!: 2019-2020 School Year

We are very pleased and excited to welcome back all of our KEYS families to the 2019-2020 school year. Our high school students and staff have begun this school year with a renewed sense of focus aimed at completing necessary coursework and remediating for upcoming SOL’s that are also required for graduation.

Our school-wide theme for this year is going to be “Direction and Opportunity” as we have several high school aged students who are expected to graduate and other students who are transitioning in some way back to their base schools. Through our daily Social Thinking instruction, we will spend ample time helping them focus forward and keeping their well-being intact as they transition in various ways.

KEYS Academy-Culpeper is also pleased to announce the addition of Earl Dyer to our staff. Mr. Dyer will fill the role of paraprofessional in our elementary school building.
