School Year Support - K-8th Grade

Keystone Science School is collaborating with several youth programs across Summit County in an effort to support the changing needs of K-8 students. Throughout the fall semester, KSS is offering programmatic options to meet the academic and social-emotional needs of students. We understand the times are uncertain and the educational landscape is shifting. It is our intention to supplement the work of our public school system and support working families in their need for programming.

Health & Safety

For over 40 years, Keystone Science School’s top priority has been the health and safety of those we serve. As developments progress with COVID-19, we have remained proactive in assessing our standard precautions against the latest recommendations from the CDC, WHO, and local health authorities.

We’re also continuing to follow the strict protocols required by Colorado child care licensing and American Camp Association accreditation to create a clean and sanitary environment. Please refer to our comprehensive health and safety pages which explain both our long-standing best practices, as well as new actions implemented in light of COVID-19:

Scholarship Information

We understand that COVID-19 has placed hardships on many in our community. In order to serve the growing financial need, Keystone Science School has developed a scholarship program specific to our school year offerings. We encourage all families with demonstrated financial need to apply by following the steps below:

Just as a reminder: we ask that all families contribute financially regardless of need to ensure enrollment and attendance. Typically our scholarship awards do not exceed 50% of the session tuition unless an exception for additional financial assistance can be determined.
