Kent was the best choice I have made in my entire young life. A lot of boarding school students don't realize how much they loved it until after they graduate but students at Kent can't seem to make their time here last long enough. Go Lions!
Worth every penny as an investment in our son's future. We originally chose Kent for the wide range of academics but found that the social / emotional development aspect of the program was just as valuable. Our son has undoubtedly made friends he will have for life. Additionally he had the opportunity to engage in a wide range of athletic and extracurricular opportunities which helped him grow and mature as a person. The school was originally founded for students of 'modest means' and this history is formative in the overall experience as Kent students tend to be down-to-earth and have a genuine affection for the community they build together. Our son is graduating this weekend and will be attending a terrific college in the fall and thanks to his experience at Kent we are not worried at all about how he will adjust or about his academic preparation. We are so thankful our son had the opportunity to attend Kent; the caring faculty, interesting student body and stunning physical location make this a dream high school to attend.
I have two boys at Kent and they absolutely love it. Its large enough to offer an in depth curriculum, a wide variety of sports at all levels and a music/arts program to make anyone happy from a beginner to the advanced yet small enough to give a sense of family and community. The advisors my boys have are invested in their success at Kent and we hear from them on a regular basis. The advisors are always reachable and work with my husband and I on any issue that might present itself from coursework to athletics. The teachers, student deans and advisors drive the kids to the train, participate in events, are with them if a hospital visit is needed and truly immerse themselves in their lives. The infirmary staff is excellent and Dr. L (who we know first hand from a visit to the hospital last year) is an excellent diagnostician and pediatrician. Great school - no regrets.
