A highly competitive secondary level boarding/day school for students of diverse backgrounds with a rigorous college preparatory academic program, extracurricular offerings ranging from interscholastic and intramural athletics, the creative and performing arts, community service projects and student publications. The teachers, coaches, and mentors you study and live with here at Kent are exceptional. Their backgrounds and experience are impressive-they've been educated at some of the most respected colleges and universities in the country. But what makes them truly Kent, truly special is the way they believe in themselves, in their jobs, and in you. It has a way of making you assertive and strong and ready-for college, for life, for anything.

The best description of academic life here might be "empowering." Our goal is for you to become self-reliant, to take responsibility for yourself-which includes seeking out help when you need it-and to use academic resources efficiently.
