At Kent Place, the strongest athlete, keenest mathematician, star performer, and class president are all girls. There's no being afraid to raise your hand, no being nervous about trying a new sport or club, just freedom — to explore, to try, to fall, to fly. Our Middle School at least 80 formal leadership positions, while the Upper School has more than 150. Strong mentors and female role models embolden Kent Place students to push themselves, pursue their passions.
Learning to lead begins in a student's first days at Kent Place because it is the school's belief that the earlier girls are exposed to the idea of leadership, the more likely they are to take on leadership roles later in life.
