We believe that goals and growth are far more important than grades and test scores. Time is built into in our day for students to "pause" and reflect on where they are and where they are going, and share this learning with others.

The Kents Hill experience is both local and global. Our 400-acre campus - including a skiing and snowboarding center, miles of wooded trails, and pristine lakefront access - provides each student with the space to learn and play beyond the classroom. Internships, community engagement, and global experiences are no longer an add-on, they are an important part of the Kents Hill experience.
