Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated in the United States each year from September 15 through October 15, and there’ll be no shortage of activities at Kent Place to mark the achievements of Hispanic Americans. Students, staff, faculty, and the community partake of the rich cultural history, from personal anecdotes to family traditions and favorite meals and from music and dance to integrating the Hispanic culture into lesson plans.
At Kent Place, Service is a part of our culture.
The opportunity to give back encourages students to think early, deeply, and often about giving their time and talents to help others.
The Primary School works to instill a sense of social responsibility in our students.
Every student in the Middle School is involved in some type of community service PROJECT.
More than 90% of our Upper School students voluntarily participate in community service projects.
Throughout the year, our students make a difference for people through community service opportunities.
