Learners Today...Leaders Tomorrow
Keyport High School served the communities of Keyport and Union Beach. KHS offers Advanced Placement Courses in all core subject areas, honors level courses and 21st century college and career ready electives. This is all in addition to our Academy offerings. We offer students the opportunity to take courses in four different academy areas: Performing Arts, Tomorrow's Teachers, Global Logistics, and Health and Sports Sciences. In addition to our college prep curriculum, we also offer the wonderful opportunity of a vocational program through Monmouth County, and courses via Virtual High School. This school year we have a group of students studying via the dual enrollment program with Brookdale Community College. Our students will be taking Psychology and Sociology at the collegiate level and earning both KHS credits along with BCC credits. At KHS, we believe we have a course of study that meets the needs of every single student.
In addition to all of the wonderful academic offerings at KHS, the 2017-2018 school year will be our first Rising Stars Early College High School Academy cohort. These students had to undergo a strenuous application process and will now have the opportunity to graduate KHS with their high school diploma and an Associcates Degree from Brookdale Community College.
Athletics and Extra-Curricular Activities
KHS offers a wide variety of activities outside of our regular school day. Clubs and activities are a major part of the high school experience. Our athletes are afforded every opportunity to compete at the highest level and many of our student athletes continue their athletic endeavors at the college and/or university level. We are extremely proud that nearly 70% of the student body is involved in athletics and extra-curricular activities.
