    A personal interview is a required piece of our application and are done virtually over Zoom or Skype.
  • Is testing required?

    While you are more than welcome to submit testing (such as the SSAT), we believe that there is so much more to a student than grades or test scores. International students must submit an official Second Language Test score along with their application.
  • How do I get to and from Kents Hill on long weekends and vacations?

    There is a chartered bus that takes students to and picks up students from South Station and Logan International Airport (BOS) in Boston, MA. The school also provides transportation to and from the Portland International Jetport (PWM) in Portland, ME, and train/bus station in Augusta, ME.
  • May I speak to current families about their Kents Hill School experience?

    Sure! We would be happy to put you in touch with a Kents Hill family. They have some of the best insights into the Kents Hill experience.
