Our most frequently asked questions

Why should I choose KEY Academy for my child?

KEY Academy is an ideal complement to the school day for students K-5. The program takes place at the school, so parents/guardians can modify their drop-off/pick-up times without adding a stop to morning and evening routines, and children can be in a known, comfortable environment. Our staff extends the school day with learning, games, activities, and fun and can provide homework support allowing families to enjoy their evenings together. 

What will my child gain through KEY Academy participation?

Children who participate in KEY Academy will have additional time with peers for building relationships and social and physical activities. They will receive homework and learning support. Children will also participate in activities and programs - that change throughout the year - to keep them engage and excited.

Does my child have to participate in KEY Academy to participate in school day(s) out and/or break club?

No, any child that meets the age requirement regardless of school attendance or KEY Academy participation is welcome to enroll in our School Day Out and Break Club sessions.

How often must I complete KDHE forms?

New KDHE forms must be completed each year.
