Welcome to our 2021-2022 school year!! We will be starting our new year at KEYS Academy-Charlottesville on August 19th and the end date will be on June 3rd, 2022.

KEYS Academy-Charlottesville will continue to strictly follow 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. We will be following all CDC and VDH guidelines, including having all students, staff, and visitors continue to wear masks in our buildings. We also ask each parent to go through the student daily health screening checklists before sending your child to school each morning, and calling the Director immediately if there are any health concerns.

We continue to offer 5 days/week in-person learning, as well as a hybrid or all-virtual model, if needed. Our school hours will be 8:30-2:30 pm this school year for students.

I’m looking forward to an exciting 2021-2022 school year!!
