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.
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.

Discussion-based classes are at the heart of the
Key curriculum. Personal opinions are shared
openly while differing viewpoints are
Key teachers and students grapple with
ideas—working together and thinking
together to forge new understandings.
students respect teachers,
teachers respect students...
and students respect fellow students.
At Key School, people and their ideas are respected.
explore new territory
take a stand
Key students gain the skills and confidence to make a difference in their community—and the world.
For 50 years key school has helped students develop the habits of mind that enable them to navigate a changing world.
asking the questions
counts as much
as knowing the answers
Key School emphasizes intellectual process as well as academic product and values probing questions as highly as thoughtful answers.

"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."
