A Rain Garden for Dr. Jones

Key's campus has a beautiful new addition courtesy of the Class of 2017. Our departing senior class chose to make their senior gift in the form of a rain garden, dedicated in memory of biology teacher Dr. Ellene Jones.

Calendar

Fusco Athletic Park

Key School completed a purchase agreement with the Annapolis Golf Course in November 2011 for a seventy-acre parcel of land located two miles from campus in the community of Annapolis Roads. Settlement took place on August 13, 2013.

By unanimous Board vote, the property was officially named the Key School Fusco Athletic Park, honoring the generous and long-time philanthropic support of current parents Kristin and Jack Fusco and the Fusco Family Foundation.

Key School plans to use this new property for recreational purposes, in support of its outdoor, environmental and athletic programs. The School’s administration and Board of Trustees will preserve and protect the existing natural areas to serve as outdoor spaces and to provide areas for recreational, conservation and horticultural activities.

Key School is committed to the stewardship of this exquisite property and to being a good neighbor to the residents of Annapolis Roads while also fulfilling the needs of our students.

Evolution of Key's Site Development Plan

The most recent Site Development Plan (SDP) has evolved over the course of the past three years, with adjustments to the initial concept plan resulting not only from feedback received from the County Office and Planning and Zoning (OPZ) but also from suggestions made by residents in Annapolis Roads and requests from the ARPOA board.

Removed from original concept plan: running track, 2 tennis courts, and 1 multi-purpose field which would have been placed behind resident homes adjacent to the property.

The final SDP comprises: 3 multi-purpose fields, 8 tennis courts, 1 baseball diamond, a nature trail, a parking lot, a pool, accessory buildings, and significant reforestation. This development plan will not be implemented all at once; rather, Key School is planning a phased construction of the project.
