Key encourages athletic participation
by every student. If you have an
interest in sports and enjoy
competition, there is a team for you.
Face-to-face with the unfamiliar, Key students cannot rely on textbook answers or routine responses. Drawing on inner resources, they find they are capable of greater physical and mental achievements than imagined.
Key students get out and see the world,
deepening their understanding of its
complexities and their role as its citizens.
Key students value both. Our school spirit is as
evident in the classroom as it is on the athletic field.

"Key prepared me for the rigorous standards of a university setting, for working independently, and taught me how to enjoy the intellectual journey. I was uniquely prepared among my peers at Stanford for making critical and analytical deductions. Key also prepared me to compete at the college level in the sense that at Key I was exposed to everything: music, athletics, theater, writing, outdoor education, so I never felt that my horizon was limited."
