The Basilica School of Saint Mary Star of the Sea

Key West, Fla.

The roots of The Basilica School stretch back to 1868, but The Basilica High School opened its doors in 2022 with a small cohort of 9th graders. It becomes only the second high school in the Florida Keys, after the public Key West High School. Basilica implements a STREAM model across all grades: science, technology, religion, engineering, the arts and math. The school aims to educate the whole person: spirit, mind and body. Strong enrollment growth in Basilica’s K-8 program since 2013 has created the opportunity to start a high school. The parish campus in the center of Key West already includes several school buildings, one of which will be renovated to serve as the high school with the support of a fundraising campaign.
