Keith Country Day School is Northern Illinois' leading independent college-prep school. Keith School was again named the #1 private school in the Rockford area and received an A+ rating by Niche, an independent agency which combines rigorous analysis with authenticated reviews to highlight the best places to live and go to school. We’re even more proud of the educational achievements and family atmosphere we offer to our students every day.
Keith Country Day School is often described as one of the most beautiful preschool through 12th-grade campuses in the entire Northern Illinois. Our 15-acre property is nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood, surrounded by beautiful trees and a picturesque view of the Rock River. Located less than half a mile from community resources like Sinnissippi Park, the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Rockford, the Nicholas Conservatory and Anderson Japanese Gardens, Keith is the perfect environment for young students to explore the world around them.
Keith is organized into three distinct schools – a Lower School (ages 3 to 5th grade), a Middle School (6th – 8th grade) and an Upper School (9th – 12th grade) – to ensure our students are connected and challenged to thrive at the pace best for them. We enroll talented, motivated, and diverse students from every economic, ethnic, and social background.
