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.

"The undergrad course load at the University of Chicago is notoriously heavy but the transition was not as difficult as I had imagined. Beyond that, I think the personal encouragement I got at Key to incorporate my artistic interests with my academic ones allowed me to develop both, at a stage in my life when choosing one over the other would have been limiting. The best filmmakers are able to grasp and imaginatively combine disparate disciplines in interesting ways and Key definitely gave me this foundation."
