Keith Country Day School holds Information Fair Jan. 21
Recognized as one of the top college-preparatory schools in northern Illinois, Keith Country Day School will host its annual Information Fair from 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Jan. 21.
Celebrating 96 years of academic excellence, visiting families will have a chance to meet teachers and students, tour classrooms and obtain information about Keith’s curriculum, sports and fine arts programs, scholarships and financial assistance.
“Our information fair is a wonderful opportunity to get to know our school,” said Alan Gibby, Keith’s Head of School. “Both teachers and students take great pride in showing off the campus and informing people about the programs we have.”
The 2011-12 school year has already been loaded with academic, fine arts and sports program successes.
Prior to press time, nearly 85 percent of the senior class had been offered academic scholarships for college admissions in 2012 and almost 25 percent of the junior class was named Illinois State Scholars this year.
In sports, the boys’ varsity soccer team finished the 2011 campaign as the No. 1 seed entering regional play and the girls’ varsity volleyball team won the Northern Athletic Conference title and tournament.
In fine arts, the drama department’s production of The Wind in the Willows was selected to perform at the 2012 Illinois Theatre Festival and more than 30 lower, middle and upper school students showcased art work at the Rockford Public Library and Rock Valley College gallery nights.
Keith Country Day School is an independent, nonsectarian, college-preparatory school founded by Belle Emerson Keith in 1916. Located on a 15-acre campus overlooking the Rock River, Keith serves students from age 3 through grade 12 from the northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin area. The school is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools and fully-accredited by the Independent Schools Association of the Central States and the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.
