Kent Denver School

4000 E Quincy Ave, Englewood, CO 80113

Kent School for girls, founded in 1922, and Denver Country Day School for boys, founded in 1953, merged in 1974 after six years as coordinate schools. The 200-acre site, which now houses both the middle school campus for grades 6-8 and the upper school (grades 9-12), was first occupied by both schools in the mid-1960s. The rigorous liberal arts curriculum in the upper school is based on traditional preparation for college, with Advanced Placement preparation offered in most subjects. A balance of academics, competitive sports and extracurricular activities includes required community service at all grade levels. A mandatory career intern experience, conducted in the spring, enables boys and girls to explore potential career fields. The fine and performing arts department offers a particularly broad course selection. Community service is required at all levels: Boys and girls in grades 6-10 engage in group projects, while juniors and seniors compile at least 80 total hours of individual service. Kent Denver's middle school curriculum includes special studies, trips and a participatory sports program.
