For over 100 years, Kent has followed our school motto: Simplicity of Life, Directness of Purpose and Self-Reliance.
Located in the Northwest corner of Connecticut in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains along the banks of the Housatonic River, Kent is rich in tradition and innovation.
Founded by an Episcopal monk, we maintain our affiliation with the church while developing to address the changing world our graduates enter.
570 girls and boys excel in our rigorous academic environment with the help of knowledgeable, supportive teachers.
Many of our faculty have advanced degrees and our average tenure is more than a dozen years.
Students prepare for the world’s top colleges and universities with an extensive liberal arts curriculum and competitive art, music and athletic programs.
We study in 27 AP subjects, rare courses like Mandarin Chinese, Irish Drama, Genetics & Biotechnology, our new Pre-Engineering program and our extensive club and extracurricular offerings.
A Kent student’s days are filled with opportunities to learn and grow, both inside and outside of the classroom.
We come from 35 states and 40 countries.
90 percent of students live on campus.
Our faculty largely live here, too and together build our active, engaging campus community seven days a week.
In fact, service to the community is a significant part of life at Kent.
Temperantia, Fiducia, Constantia.
