We believe that the best education for girls and young women is a single-sex environment in which students discover their strengths and are empowered to reach beyond the constraints of gender roles. We are a community of enthusiastic and motivated learners and educators who value fair-mindedness, mutual concern, honesty and fairness. We energize a traditional curriculum with innovation and believe that girls meet their best potential in an interconnected environment that is proactive, responsive and flexible and that promotes self-confidence, self-advocacy and healthy risk-taking. We strive to meet the intellectual, emotional and social needs of our students through a rigorous curriculum that promotes curiosity, creativity and a growing sense of self-discipline.
Our curriculum and programs are rich in opportunities for students to build decision-making, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. We promote integrity, respect and trust throughout all of the schooling years in our conversations, actions, reflective moments and commitment toward respecting and understanding perspectives that are different from our own. Our students take on increasingly profound leadership opportunities that foster cooperation, initiative and self-awareness while also cultivating compassion and caring. We believe that the lessons and values encouraged by our multi-talented faculty prepare each student to be an active contributor to the larger world beyond Kent Place.
