At Kents Hill School we educate our students in mind, body, and spirit in order to prepare them for the challenges and opportunities of higher education; to help them learn to love and respect themselves and their fellow students, and to care for those in less fortunate circumstances; to teach them to be responsible stewards of our natural heritage; and to remind them that one man or woman of principle can always make a difference.
We are committed to providing our students a superb academic preparation for college and a strong grounding in lifelong ethical values.
We are a supportive and friendly school, with a strong and abiding sense of community.
We care deeply about our students as individuals, and we work hard to instill in every student the confidence to become a leader and to fulfill his/her potential.
We believe strongly that "one man or woman of principle can make a difference."
