Kent School

1 Macedonia Rd, PO Box 2006, Kent, CT 06757

Kent has been characterized since its founding by simplicity, self-reliance and directness of purpose. Rev. Frederick H. Sill, a man of extraordinary genius and vigor, started the school in a small farm building. He developed the Kent plan of self-help, still in practice today, whereby students participate in a daily work program. Kent became coeducational in 1960, when it opened a campus for girls near its boys' campus. After operating for more than 30 years on two campuses, Kent consolidated its operations on one campus in 1992. The school facilities include St. Joseph's Chapel, a fine Norman chapel—complete with bell tower and cloister—at the center of the campus. The school has a rigorous liberal arts program with Advanced Placement courses in every discipline—including computer science, environmental science and economics—and provides a course in study skills for all freshmen. The classics program includes Greek and Latin language study and an emphasis on classical literature and mythology.
