age group 2-5

Early Childhood Education. Private School Admissions.

While fostering social and emotional learning, we teach children essential skills and concepts for long-term success in highly selective schools. Current research shows that children achieve the best results academically, emotionally, socially, physically, and artistically when they develop a balance of these intelligences. KEY teachers know that self-regulated learning is also critical to success in today’s education system and they strive to help young children regulate their learning.

age group 6-12

Tutoring. Academic Planning. Admissions.

Our unique Academic Planning process gives your child the advantage by assessing where they need to focus and then recommending a pathway to academic success. From there, Subject Tutoring allows for your child to select particular subjects they find difficult or would like to get ahead in with private, semi-private and group classes for all subjects at any age level. Finally, work with our Admissions team for that edge when applying for private and boarding schools. At KEY, our staff will customize a plan that meets the needs of your child and your family.

age group 13-18

As parents, we want to make sure that our children have the right education for their future. However, when it came time to apply for private schools, we realized just how competitive the admissions process was. KEY helped put our minds at ease as they guided us through the behind-the-scenes process of the application process to top private schools. We saw the value in working with a KEY admissions expert who not only went to a top private school but also had work experience as a private school admissions interviewer. We will certainly return to KEY when it comes time to prepare for the university application process.
