Kent Place’s theme for 2023–2024 is “Deepening Connections in Community,” expanding on an aspect of the KPS experience that has long set the school apart — the focus on stepping outside the classroom to strengthen bonds at the start of the academic year.
Where does a student's individuality and empathic and expressive potential meet collaboration, design, problem solving, and critical thinking?
The Arts at Kent Place.
Creative thinking and artistic expression are essential to the Kent Place experience and emphasized in all grades. The arts — including robust programs in music, dance, visual arts, and theater — reinforce, reinvigorate, and even reinvent themes taught in the classroom.
Our proximity to New York City certainly doesn't hurt — when we're not hosting visiting professional artists and performers, we're traveling with students to theaters, world-class museums, and galleries — bringing the arts to life for every girl.
Kent Place Gallery is a space dedicated to the enjoyment of and engagement with fine arts that serves the Kent Place community and surrounding area with an exciting and varied program of exhibitions. The gallery typically presents solo shows by several professional artists each year, taking advantage of our proximity to New York City to offer contemporary art experiences of exceptional quality. Exhibiting artists often visit the Kent Place campus and make themselves available to students in lectures, classroom visits, gallery talks, and informal conversations. The gallery is also the primary venue for displaying Kent Place student art.
