Middle\Upper School Athletics
When it comes to Keith’s athletic program, participation and enthusiasm are balanced with a high level of competition. We want our students to enjoy the opportunity to compete and participate in sports, which is why we have a NO CUT policy.Anyone who wants to play team sports can. In fact, on average 80% of our middle and upper school students are involved in at least one sport. A member of the Illinois High School Athletic Association (IHSA) and a founding member of the Northern Athletic Conference, Keith offers a wide range of sports including volleyball, soccer, basketball, tennis, cross country and golf. In addition to our team and individual sports programs, we also have a comprehensive physical education curriculum that emphasizes motor development, coordination, and basic fitness in the context of fair play and sportsmanship.The main goal for our athletic program is for our athletes to realize their full range of potential while reinforcing the principles of self-esteem building, discipline, fair play, and tradition. Athletic participation is an integral part of education and we believe that participation in sports develops and instills the qualities of sportsmanship, character, and leadership.

Although Keith is more well-known for its academics, our athletic program has grown substantially. Since 1982, our teams have won more than 32 regional, sectional and conference championships. Most recently, our volleyball team (2012) won the Class 1A State Championship, and our soccer team (2012) placed third at the Class 1A State Finals. Our Scholastic Bowl team, which falls under the umbrella of the IHSA, finished third at the Class 1A state finals for two consecutive years (2011 and 2012).
