Third Quarter Director’s Wrap-Up: 2020-2021 School Year

This third quarter of the school year has started with tremendous momentum for our students here at KEYS Academy – Culpeper. Our teachers and staff have worked closely with our upper middle and high school students on the writing process and additional writing techniques in preparation for the upcoming Writing SOL and Work Keys assessments.

Our current group of high school students are mostly a senior laden group that have spent much of this quarter focusing on graduation requirements such as course completion and SOL remediation. Additionally, our high school staff has worked closely with students during our “Adulting” program. This program highlights vital skills and strategies for students to consider/practice as they begin to wrap up their high school careers before entering the workforce or continuing their education.

At the middle school level, we have started this quarter with a renewed focus on career and technical education (CTE). Our middle school staff and students have worked diligently on many of the CTE components that include but are not limited to career exploration, career interest surveys, and even mock interviews as a way to expose the students to the necessary CTE objectives as outlined by the state while also giving them hands on experience and practice with these skills and components.

Our last day of school here at KEYS Academy- Culpeper is now May 21, 2021 due to make-up days from the previous inclement weather. Extended school year (ESY) 2021 will be in session from June 7, 2021 until July 15, 2021 (Monday through Thursday only).
