Concussion Awareness & Testing

Key School is committed to doing everything possible to mitigate brain injuries from concussions and promote awareness of the damage concussions can do to brain health. Towards that goal, Key has partnered with XLNTbrain to conduct yearly baseline concussion testing for student/athletes and provide State-mandated concussion awareness education for both students and parents. Read more about this partnership.

All Upper School students who wish to participate in 2018-2019 fall, winter or spring sports are required to take a yearly computerized concussion evaluation. Questions? Contact Alexis Martin.
