In public school, I was one of the few kids that was truly motivated to succeed and when I came to Kent I was no longer the odd one out. Kent has definitely encouraged me to be the best well-rounded person. I was never really involved in team sports until my freshmen year and now I play both field hockey (acting in winter) and lacrosse with amazing, supportive teammates and coaches. It is a requirement to take an art, music and theology class. Some people don't like it but I think it really helps people step outside their learning comfort zone and especially in theology with Mrs. Pricket, to broaden your perspective in life. The lovely valley land is such a beautiful place to walk around every season. There is also such a great support system with school counselors, peer counselors, tutors, etc. In the end, even with homesickness, I wouldn't trade this experience for anything in the world. Can't wait for all the senior traditions privileges!
Review Kent School
Our son is currently a Sr. at Kent and we couldn't be happier with the quality of education and overall experience. Great location, walk to town, top notch academics, world renown faculty, strong athletics and arts, plus a beautiful campus make Kent a top choice! They have also done a fantastic job of preparing him for the next level of education and we are happy to say he was accepted to his first choice university, one of the best in the country! This would not be possible without the support of Kent.

I would suggest visiting the school to get a first hand look at what they have to offer. You will not be disappointed.
At Kent, you are required to participate on sports teams and take part in a music/ arts program at least once. Most students are very involved with the music department, athletics, and other clubs. They offer anything from community service to fishing clubs, so there is always something for everyone. And if you have a great idea for a club, you can always start one with a few people! They offer many different activities so that you can put together an impressive resume when the time comes to apply to college.
