Keystone Freedom Academy was founded by highly respected colleague and educator to serve some of our most challenging students. It is the genuine care for the success of their students that makes this organization a leader among its competitors!

KFA was founded by a colleague of mine who has dedicated her life to serving students who need an advocate. Since its founding, KFA has expanded significantly, a sign of their success and commitment to meet a vital need for students in our communities. I encourage you to visit and see for yourself what a difference KFA is making in students’ lives!

At Keystone Freedom Academy, we are driven to help each student identify the key to unlocking the freedom in their education. In order to do this, we employ a number of strategies and programs designed specifically with the student in mind. We provide rigorous academics to help students perform at grade level and a full social-emotional curriculum to increase success. Additionally, we train all staff in Trauma Informed Care,  Restorative Practices, Positive Behavior Supports and Interventions, the Ukeru System of Behavior Management, Mindfulness and more.

I am a current student in the 7th grade here at KFA. Since I started here at KFA, the staff have helped me significantly. I am currently working towards transitioning back to my charter school which is very positive. The staff and students here are like family and I will miss them.

Overall, I recommend KFA to all of my friends!

Student

Keystone Freedom Academy is one of the first programs for students with behavior or emotional concerns to receive not only support for their areas of concern, but also keeps them up to date academically.  As an emotional support teacher, I have never seen a program that addresses the whole child  in terms of emotional and academic growth at the same time.  The way they set up supports and rewards, students have no choice but to complete work.  The staff is trained and calm and they teach students to use strategies and not to engage when angry.  Lastly, KFA has a no physical restraint policy where students can feel safe and can practice making decisions to earn desired results. 

Laura Stark, Special Education Teacher

Even though Keystone Freedom Academy is a small school, you couldn’t even tell based on how much the staff supports one another! A great place to work or to be a part of as a student.

I am a student at Keystone Freedom Academy and personally this school has helped me a lot with my personal issues, my educational issues and my attitude towards school. They have helped me to get straight A’s for the first time since elementary school. Keystone Freedom Academy has great staff that makes the day go by easier, the staff also check up on you and make sure they are doing everything they can to make sure we are okay and giving school our hardest try. They also understand that not everyone has the best days so when you are having a off day they try and help you out and make the day more comfortable for you.

I am a current student at KFA in the 11th grade. I was one of the first students to start here at KFA. In my time here, I have made significant gains academically and socially. Staff have assisted me with gaining employment as well as my diving permit. Overall, KFA has assisted me with growing into the young man I am today. I look forward to what I will accomplish because of KFA in the future!
