The Key School has officially earned Maryland Green School Certification by the Maryland Association of Environmental & Outdoor Education. This designation comes after a lengthy application process that required an in-depth review of the School's programs and philosophy as well as substantiation of a sustained dedication to environmental initiatives.

A student leader in the school's Upper School, Jayda is active with several student groups and has competed in pageant contests since she was 5 years old. She organized the Students for Social Change's annual Diversity Day, held Feb 3. Jayda arranged two seminars for her schoolmates. One incorporated interactive activities designed to encourage the students' awareness of their own privileges, and a second session included a discussion based on what happened during the interactive sessions and how the students could be more inclusive.


College Advising

Key Class of 2016

It's all about searching for, applying to and deciding on a right-fit college

  • Student-Centered: The focus is on “fit,” on identifying the characteristics and criteria that help Key students find schools that meet their academic ability, social needs and geographic preferences. Key’s Director of College Advising uses a variety of tools to understand each student’s learning style, academic history and general interests.

  • Prepared: Key students are comfortable talking to adults, strong self-advocates, and capable expressing their thoughts in challenging classroom discussions. Key graduates are well-prepared for the challenges of collegiate programs and able to meet the expectations of their professors.

  • Choices: Key graduates attend a wide array of colleges across the country and overseas from research 1 universities to liberal arts colleges and from Ivy League institutions to public universities. The goal of Key’s College Advising program is to help students identify 7-9 colleges where they will be challenged, successful and grow.
