MYCA's outline of operational procedures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Below is an outline of the Academy’s plan to protect students, staff, and the local community. This plan has been formulated with current guidance, and with consideration of our unique circumstance as a residential academic intervention program located on a college campus.

Please note that our plan may be modified due to changes in the operational environment, or directives from state or local public health officials, in reference to the COVID-19. Any modifications to this plan will include input and approval from UMW, Beaverhead County Public Health Department, and the State of Montana.
