On Sunday, October 17 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., there will be an Open House for prospective families interested in the Middle School, Grades 6-8, or Upper School, Grades 9-12. 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. 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.
