Keith Flaherty '83

Director of Clinical Research, Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center & Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School
At Calvert, the process of learning is as important as the product. Drafts, edits, and corrections are all part of the process of creating monthly folder papers. Reading, researching, correcting and hypothesizing encapsulate each grade’s capstone project. As a Calvert student, Keith Flaherty first looked into a microscope and discovered new organisms. He asked questions, researched the answers and presented them to his class. He laid the foundation for his career as a cancer researcher. Today, he is the Director of the Henri and Belinda Thermeer Center for Targeted Therapies at Mass General. Yesterday, he was a Calvert student discovering, for the first time, the power of research.
Calvert School is a coed independent lower and middle school.
