Our Athletics Philosophy

Kent Place has established 15 varsity sports, plus Sailing as a club sport. Our teams continue to achieve high levels of success and produce winning records. We have won championships at the state, county and conference levels. Our varsity athletes have earned individual honors, and each year more Kent Place athletes go on to successfully compete at the college level.

Participation in athletics is an integral part of the overall Kent Place School experience for our students, and our athletic teams are a source of pride for the Kent Place community. We are committed to maintaining a healthy balance between athletics, academics and extra-curricular programs providing a quality competitive program for our student athletes while encouraging students to participate in other areas of school life.

Our philosophy is to provide a competitive yet inclusive athletic program. A broad range of sports teams and competitive levels allow for both strong varsity teams and wide participation at the JV and Middle School levels. We value athletic participation and believe in the benefits afforded to girls through competition.

Our Sports Academy program offers additional sports skill development programs for the Primary, Middle and Upper School levels.
