Academics

Balanced, Purposeful, Impactful

Kents Hill's Four-Dimensional (4D) Academic Curriculum places equal importance on knowledge, skills, character, and reflection. For example, our sophomore English students will read “A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier” by Ishmael Beah while exploring the historical significance of the civil war in Sierra Leone, discovering individuals who have displayed profound resilience in the face of seemingly impossible situations, and reflecting on how the story relates to their own journeys through free writing and discussion.

 

Core Skills

Over 90 courses allow students to explore ideas and topics that they are passionate about while developing the core skills of creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking. Exciting offerings range from computer science, industrial robotics, and game/application design to astrophysics, mindfulness meditation, furniture making, and the social and political history of hip-hop.

Dual-Enrollment Courses

For our most motivated students, we’ve partnered with a number of Maine colleges and universities to offer Dual-Enrollment courses. Students work with Kents Hill School teachers in-person and on-campus during the academic day with the ability to earn transferable college credit in writing, physics, anatomy and physiology, entrepreneurship, investment and financial planning, and more.
