ROCKFORD’S PREMIERE PRIVATE SCHOOL
PRESCHOOL THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL
The #1 Ranked College-Preparatory School in the Region
We’re honored Keith School was again named the #1 private school in the Rockford area and received an A+ rating by Niche, an independent agency which combines rigorous analysis with authenticated reviews to highlight the best places to live and go to school. We’re even more proud of the educational achievements and family atmosphere we offer to our students every day.
We prepare our students for success in college and life beyond their formal education. We inspire them to explore and celebrate their unique abilities through an abundance of enrichment programs and opportunities – from individual and team sports to strong music and theater/arts programs to more than 35 leadership, academic and special interest organizations. In addition to a strong liberal arts curriculum, Keith emphasizes real-world experiences through signature programs, such as senior projects, leadership opportunities, and global awareness. Core values of trust, respect, and kindness permeate all school experiences.
Keith Leadership Team
Charo Chaney and Ashleigh Van Thiel are the Head of School Co-Leads at Keith. Both individuals are well-qualified, highly experienced and passionate about Keith School. Together, their vision and leadership enhances our students’ education, positively impacts teacher development and ensures the continued stability of our school.
OUR NUMBERS SAY IT ALL
Students at every level, from preschool (3-year-olds) to grade 12, give back to the community in hundreds of ways, both big and small – from collecting books for underprivileged children, to participating in Amnesty International, to raising money for breast cancer.
The school’s diversity percentage ranks higher than other private schools within a 20-mile radius.
At Keith, our students develop confidence and independence, which provides a strong foundation to flourish in a world well beyond our beautiful campus.
