I can’t believe that we are at the end of our first quarter of our “new normal” during this extended pandemic. Overall, both students and staff have adjusted very well to our hybrid program. We have been focusing on the “Who Matters” Key during this quarter, and our students are demonstrating how much they care about one another by wearing their masks, maintaining a 6 ft distance, and just generally checking on each other’s well-being. I am truly amazed by the resilience of our young people and how hard they are working towards their goals even during a time of great change. Although we have all had to adjust to teaching and learning virtually for part of our week, our students at KEYS Academy Charlottesville tackled this with a “can do” attitude , and are focusing forward with confidence.

As we wind down this quarter and start a new one, we will continue to focus on growing both academically and preparing our students how to use their KEYS for a BIG LIFE in today’s world!! Below is a list of some upcoming dates to know.
