They are dedicated to providing an education exemplified by "excellence in scholarship and character."
- Of course, much of the fun of learning is having the freedom to pursue personal interests. We`re pleased to provide a wide array of Middle and Upper School electives; signature programs such as robotics, speech and debate, Model UN, commercial music and entrepreneurship; more than 50 student-created, student-led extracurricular clubs and robust independent learning opportunities through Kent Denver Institutes and the Global Online Academy.
- Additionally, we are one of the few schools in the country to host an on-campus bank operated primarily by students. We are also home to a student-managed caf, a state-of-the-art recording studio, high-tech maker spaces and a LEED Platinum-certified Dining Hall.
- Over the years, our athletics teams have earned 80 State Championships, 58 State Runners-Up, 26 State Final Fours, 93 Regional Championships, 18 District Championships and 140 League Championships. Equally important, students of all levels and abilities had opportunities to challenge themselves and grow in our athletics program.
- Kent Denver is also home to a vital Parents` Association. Throughout the year, parents and guardians enjoy a number of special activities, from a speakers` series to parent clubs, affinity groups, special events and more.
- We award approximately $3.6 million in financial aid to 23% of our students each year. Applied directly to tuition, these awards immediately reduce the cost of attendance and help ensure Kent Denver is an affordable option for all income levels.
- No matter where you look on our 200-acre campus, you will see students, faculty, staff and families living our core values of integrity, respect, community, personal growth and wisdom. Separately and together, these values allow us to celebrate our differences as we learn from each other and from our local, national and international communities.
