    and competitive

    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 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.

    your ideas matter

    Discussion-based classes are at the heart of the
    Key curriculum. Personal opinions are shared
    openly while differing viewpoints are
    respectfully exchanged.

    exciting ideas!

    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.

    knowing how
    to think

    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."
