- Keystone Academy was originally chartered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1868, with instruction beginning the following year in the local Baptist church in Factoryville. In 1870, ground was broken on the current site for the Academy's first building, Harris Hall, named after John Howard Harris, first president of Keystone. Harris Hall continues to serve Keystone College today. For over 65 years, the Academy served the secondary educational needs of the region admirably. Keystone Academy was rechartered as Scranton-Keystone Junior College in 1934. Ten years later, the name of the College was shortened to Keystone Junior College, and in 1995 to its present form, Keystone College. Today, with its career-oriented liberal arts in place, Keystone College is a leader in education. In 2000, the College awarded its first baccalaureate degree and announced the receipt of its first million dollar gift. January 2001 marked the opening of the College's newest residence hall, Keystone Commons, the first new residence hall built on campus since Moffat Hall in 1970. Currently, the College offers 13 bachelor's degrees, 20 associate degrees and enrolls a diverse student body from throughout the U.S. and more than 14 countries. The College also participates in Division III athletics, fielding 14 men's and women's teams. Keystone offers bachelor of science degrees in accounting, biological science, business, criminal justice administration, early childhood education, elementary education, environmental resource management, forensic biology, human resource management, information technology, sport and recreation management, and teaching, and bachelor of arts degrees in communication arts and humanities, and visual art. The college is accreditation by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.
