The Admission Office at Kent Place School, an independent, college-preparatory day school for girls and young women, with a co-ed Nursery and Pre-Kindergarten program, announces its spring Information Sessions for prospective families interested in Nursery, Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and Grades 1-5 on Tuesday, April 10 from 9:00-11:00 a.m. and on Thursday, April 12 from 9:00-11:00 a.m. for Middle School (Grades 6-8), or Upper School (Grades 9-12). Following a brief information session, attendees will tour the 26-acre campus and meet members of the faculty, administration and staff.
The Primary School provides a challenging and diverse academic program in a caring and supportive environment, in which children feel motivated to learn, take risks and ask questions. The Middle School provides a developmentally appropriate and well-rounded education that nurtures and guides girls through their transition from childhood to adolescence, balancing their desire for increased challenge, independence and responsibility with their need for support and structure. The Upper School’s academically rigorous college-preparatory curriculum has been designed to fulfill the admission requirements of the most competitive colleges and universities. Emphasis is on the development of strong writing and analytical skills within the framework of a comprehensive course of study in math, sciences, technology and the humanities, enriched with experiences in the fine arts and athletics.
A broad range of opportunities for leadership, social development and responsible citizenship is offered in all three divisions. Independent thinking and personal development are integral to the learning experience at Kent Place.
We are a school community with clearly defined scholastic, moral and behavioral standards, committed to a rigorous academic, creative and physical curriculum. Kent Place offers multi-dimensional and comprehensive educational experience combining academic rigor with a richness of activities, athletics and community endeavors. Kent Place seeks motivated students who are eager to learn and take advantage of the many opportunities the school offers. We encourage applications from families of all racial, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. We value the wide range of interests and talents that all of our students bring to the school.
We continue to accept applications for placement in the Preschool, Kindergarten and Grades 1-2 for the 2012-2013 school year. Applications for Grades 3-10 will reopen in August for admission in the fall 2013 term.
