Kent Place is an independent, nonsectarian, college-preparatory day school, which for over 100 years has provided a superior education for young women in grades Preschool - Grade 12 who demonstrate strong scholastic and creative ability.
Our mission is to offer students of diverse backgrounds, in Preschool through Grade 12, an academically rigorous curriculum in a caring atmosphere; to encourage them to contribute to and find success in this challenging program; to inspire young women to leadership; and to strengthen moral awareness. Committed to a liberal arts education that combines tradition and innovation, Kent Place provides the stimulus for each student to achieve her full academic, physical and creative potential; to love learning; to gain confidence; to live responsibly; to develop respect for herself and others in the global community.
At Kent Place, girls do not just have equal opportunity. They have every opportunity. In the classrooms, on the field and on the stage, they are the ones playing the leading roles. Research shows that boys and girls learn differently. With a deep understanding of how girls learn and succeed, Kent Place provides the resources that allow each girl to reach her full potential. In this environment, girls can be themselves. They gain the self-awareness to express themselves without hesitation, the courage to take on new challenges and the confidence that leads to success.
