Kent Place School Announces All School Spring Information Session Dates

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.
