Officials with the regional school system and the Lincroft campus of Brookdale Community College formally opened the new K.E.Y.S. Academy which will combine regular high school with efforts to address youthful addiction.
The mission of K.E.Y.S. or Knowledge Empowers Youthful Sobriety Academy is to provide an academically innovative and supportive environment to help eliminate the achievement gap for adolescents who have been diagnosed with a substance-use disorder and are seeking a sober, healthy lifestyle.
