    why choose just one?

    Key School is an ideal environment for students
    who want a broad experience. We don’t believe
    students should narrow their options.

    respectfully exchanged.

    At Key School, people and their ideas are respected.

  • "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."
