Vision, Mission & Purpose


We believe that education is about the whole child – fostering growth not only academically, but also spiritually, emotionally, socially and civically.  Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching, The Key is empowering each student to learn, practice and master academic standards, as well as develop 21st Century skills in an innovative, adaptive, strengths-based environment where success is measured not merely by grades and test scores, but by a student’s demonstration of mastery through a variety of intelligences.


The mission of The Key is to unlock success for all students of all abilities through student-centered learning, a strong teacher/student connection, family involvement, social and emotional acceptance, creative choice, and collaboration that rigorously prepare learners for the 21st Century.


The purpose of The Key is to provide multiple and diverse paths to educational success, challenging each learner at his or her academic level.  To accomplish this, teachers and students become partners in education, cultivating a sense of purpose and passion for education as a lifelong journey.

But that doesn’t mean you should all look and speak and act the same. Out of the generosity of Christ, each of us is given his own gift . (Ephesians 4:7)
