Kents Hill School

1614 Main St, PO Box 257, Kents Hill, ME 04349

One of the oldest coeducational boarding schools in the country, Kents Hill was established by Luther D. Sampson to offer "an educational program calculated to inspire intellectual growth and develop character." The curriculum includes a wide variety of courses, ranging from the traditional to the progressive. Numerous electives supplement required courses. The school's learning center provides students with one-on-one instruction, and SAT preparation is available on a weekly basis. Sophomores and juniors may participate in exchange programs with schools in the US and Europe. All boys and girls take part in two community service days annually. Kents Hill owns and operates its own on-campus ski and snowboard slope and complex of cross-country trails, providing for a strong emphasis on winter sports. Nearby Lovejoy Pond is available for environmental research, as well as for canoeing, fishing and swimming. The school also plans hiking, rock climbing and biking trips in the area. Kents Hill's proximity to Portland and to Colby, Bates and Bowdoin colleges enables students to attend lectures, concerts, dances, athletic contests and other events.
