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.
Our cross-country program values the contribution of every individual; as a team, our student-athletes train hard, run fast, and compete with passion.
Our team is a perennial favorite in the Union County Conference (UCC), the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA), and the New Jersey Independent School Athletic Association (NJISAA) Class A division. The cross-country Dragons are seasoned veterans and promising newcomers.
Our experienced and enthusiastic coaching staff believes in the importance of camaraderie, accountability, and balanced competition. The program is individually based, so every girl interested in participating — from our younger student-athletes to those who have been part of the program for a few years — builds strength and endurance and gets to race to the best of her ability.

Participation in athletics is an integral part of the overall school experience for our students, and our athletic teams are a source of pride for the Kent Place community. Our philosophy is to provide a competitive athletic program where our student-athletes can reach their full potential.
