From its beginnings in a small house on Park Street, Keystone has strived to provide the best opportunities possible for its students. Today, its mission of challenging students to push beyond their limits and develop their growth as compassionate people continues to create graduates who go on to make a genuine difference in our world, and inspire younger students to follow and create their own ways.
The success of our school comes from support from the entire Keystone community — parents, alumni, faculty and staff, and community partners. Keystone thrives because parents volunteer, students devote time to help the school, community partners provide opportunities, and because supporters at all levels contribute what they can to help their own children, fellow students and the Keystone scholars of the future.
Your support makes it possible for Keystone to stay ahead of educational developments and pursue an educational mission that values small classes; excellence in teaching; creative, experiential learning; and diversity of backgrounds.
Thanks to the help of devoted supporters, Keystone has stayed in the forefront of American education since 1948. With your help, we will continue preparing students to excel in a changing world for the next 70 years and beyond.
To support its mission of academic excellence, ethical growth, responsible leadership and community involvement, Keystone offers many opportunities:
Each fall, our Annual Fund campaign asks parents to contribute to help fund items such as continuing education for our teachers, new furniture for student break rooms, new playground equipment for the Little and Lower schools, and much more.
Our rapidly growing endowment provides support for Lower School tuition assistance and other ongoing needs.
One of the dedicated funds in our endowment, the Daniel Wesley Stevens Memorial Endowed Fund for Teacher Support, helps educators to honor the memory of a former student.
We have recently begun a campaign to build an endowment to fund financial aid in the Lower School. In addition, we are meeting with parents and grandparents about joining our Legacy Circle and including Keystone in their estate planning. Furthermore, supporters can make Memorial Gifts in honor of loved ones.
In the spring, a larger event offers an opportunity for parents, alumni and friends of Keystone to come together, mingle and celebrate our community. Other events supplement the funds raised from our springtime gathering.
