Kent School is nationally recognized for its school-wide Chesapeake Bay Studies Program. The Chester River is one of the largest tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay. Our unique location, on the bank of the Chester River affords many wonderful teaching and learning opportunities. Using the environment as an integrating context allows us to teach core subjects through the theme of Chesapeake Bay Studies.
In a yearlong program, Kent School is partnering with the Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Potomac, MD to focus on the leading brain science and research, and to learn to integrate educational neuroscience into the classroom.

Kent School students in Grade Four will participate in a program at the CBF Smith Island Education Center in May. Mugele said, "I engaged in some of the same activities as our students do on their Bay Studies trips. Now that I have taken this trip, I share a wonderful, inspiring Kent School educational experience with our students."
