Welcome to the Kent School website. I am especially pleased that you have chosen to learn more about our programs in our unparalleled environment for learning. One of the many reasons I am grateful to be at Kent School is because I get to experience the joyful learning that takes place here each and every day. 

Kent School is committed to being environmental stewards and was named a Maryland Green School in 2017. We are proud that we are the only independent school in Kent County with this designation and that we received the Environmental Awareness Award from the Kent County Chamber of Commerce. 
From Little School to Lower School to Middle School I believe that the educational foundation we provide at Kent School is essential to create the kind of leaders we need in our increasingly complex world. Kent School’s child-centered approach nurtures students who possess empathy, are able to work effectively on teams and who are, most especially, critical and creative thinkers. Our signature Chesapeake Bay Studies program, foreign language concentration in Spanish, World Studies, all foster global citizenry. Our students care deeply about their community and the environment, and they bring kindness and integrity to their endeavors inside and outside of School.

As we enter our next half century, the meaningful traditions that are a hallmark of a Kent School education will continue to be treasured even as we look to the future and bring innovation and mind, brain and education science to our teaching and learning.

I am delighted that you are exploring the Kent School website and I hope you will come visit us in person to see for yourself firsthand how joyful your child’s education can be.
