Kent School


P.O. Box 2006
Kent, Connecticut, USA

Kent is a great school and a balanced school. Our academic program isn't just rigorous, it's rigorous and interesting, with classes that are rare at the high school level. As you look through the course titles—Irish Drama; Mandarin Chinese; Genetics; Biotechnology; Genocide in the 20th Century; Constitutional Law, Civil Rights and the Supreme Court—you'll see what we mean. And our engaged faculty are here to support you as you take on these challenges. You can also design your own course as an Independent Study Project. One student studied behavioral development in her grade-school-aged dance students. Another focused on American socialism and its quick rise and fall. The local history of Kent itself has been a student's project, as have robotic machines built from Legos. As great as your studies are at Kent, that's just part of the picture. The Arts flourish here, with strong programs in the visual arts, drama and music. Again, the variety of courses is rich—Sculpture, Digital Imaging, Orchestra, to name a few—and they are supplemented by extracurricular arts activities, such as Bell Ringing or singing in our a cappella groups, or even the spring musical, which combines efforts from the whole arts department. Kent also has a vigorous and successful athletics program. We compete in 32 varsity sports in the Founder's League, one of the most competitive independent school leagues in the country. Virtually every year Kent wins League Championship in at least one sport and every season Kent athletes earn League All-Star, New England All-Star, or even All-American recognition. There's also an excellent intramural program with sports like skiing and mountain biking....
