Former Students of Annapolis, Maryland's Key School Alleged Sex Abuse, Shocks the Community

Former students of the Key School, a private school in Maryland, have come forward with allegations of sexual abuse dating back several decades.

The accounts involve former faculty and staff members at the school, and some of the allegations also involve other students who were perpetrators of sexual assault.

Joe Janney, president of Key School’s board of trustees, said in a statement that the allegations are “credible and . . . extremely upsetting.”

“The behavior of many of the accused is inexcusable and intolerable,” the statement said. “On behalf of the Key School, we deeply regret what occurred and apologize to all who were impacted by this.”

However, the school has been criticized for its lack of transparency and action in response to the allegations.

The school's alumni group has called for an independent investigation to be conducted to address the claims.

The school has since released a statement acknowledging the allegations and stating that it will be conducting an internal review.

Officials at Key School released a report that acknowledged:

  • Several teachers had sexual relationships with students in the 1970s through the 1990s; 
  • At least 16 former students were victims of abuse;
  • Ten adults in positions of authority at Key School had sexual misconduct or inappropriate relationships with students; and,
  • One unnamed person was both a victim and an abuser

We are standing by to inform and assist individuals who have been victimized by abuse or harassment at Key School and want compensation for their trauma.

We believe Annapolis, Maryland's Key School Sex Abuse victims should receive justice and potential compensation for pain and suffering.
