Magic Maker

Magic happens every day at Keith School.

Learning to write your name in PreK. Conquering fear and delivering your lines in the class play. Enjoying a school sport that allows you to fully participate. Singing Just One Candle to our loved ones each year. Putting your own class twist into the annual “12 Days of Christmas” song during the holiday concert. Opening that acceptance e-mail to the college you dream of attending.

At Keith School we take tremendous pride in preparing students to reach their greatest potential, and we know you value our tradition of developing caring and responsible critical thinkers and leaders. We are grateful to count you as part of our community. Your friendship and support are essential to our success.

After 105 years, Keith School remains the only independent, non-denominational college preparatory K-12 school in our region. And, after 105 years, our facilities are facing needs. With that in mind, we have launched our 2021 Forever Keith fund drive with the goal of raising $50,000 for our capital fund. This year the fund will focus on parts of the Upper School roof to ensure our students, staff and families remain in a safe environment. Additionally, if we can raise $12,000 more (for a total of $62,000), we can cover the cost of replacing ceiling tiles in the Upper School.

The Forever Keith fund drive is our primary fundraising vehicle and includes parents, grandparents, alumni, alumni parents, faculty, staff, and friends of the school. This year’s Magic Maker campaign helps Keith continue to offer a safe, secure, and comfortable environment in which to instruct, inspire, and ignite tomorrow’s leaders.

There are three easy ways to give for your convenience:

  • From your Keith FACTS account
  • Mailing your donation to Keith School, Attn: Forever Fund
  • Click below on the DONATE button

While we know the magic happens because of our students, faculty, families and staff, the capital needs are great. We ask that you continue to invest in our wonderful school and in the bright future of our exceptional students: become a Magic Maker.
