Why Key?


What makes Key School different from most schools is our approach to teaching and learning—where critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, and resourcefulness are valued above the volume of content covered.

Our exceptional faculty, evolving interdisciplinary curriculum and meaningful connections are why Key students thrive and why we are one of the most sought-after educations in Maryland.

Our rigorous academic program emphasizes experiential learning, interdisciplinary studies and a global perspective while building the habits of grit, tenacity and resourcefulness.
