Signature Programs

List of 5 items.

  • DIRIGO Leadership Development Program

    DIRIGO (“I Lead”) helps young people reach their full potential through intentional and developmentally-appropriate programming. It spans a student’s entire experience at Kents Hill School and serves as the central character component of the 4D Academic Curriculum. All programs take advantage of our newly created “H-Block,” a dedicated time during the weekly academic schedule for special projects and initiatives.
  • Advisory

    Our advisory program is about making connections that last a lifetime. Each student is assigned a faculty advisor at the beginning of the school year who is dedicated to providing support and guidance, both in formal gatherings and impromptu meetings.  Whether a student is seeking advice on academics, athletics, social issues, or simply needs to know that someone is rooting for them, advisors are there.

    Advisors meet individually with students during a period built into the daily schedule and share monthly lunches and/or dinners with their groups, ensuring that students are both recognized as individuals and connected to a larger group. Advisors are also the main point of contact between Kents Hill School and parents, ensuring that families are involved, informed, and engaged no matter where they are in the world.
  • Academic Coaching

    We believe that with the right people, and in the right environment, students will accomplish extraordinary things. Our Academic Coaching program pairs students with an adult mentor who is fully committed to ensuring that they thrive in all aspects of school life and are prepared to tackle college and beyond with self-confidence, self-determination, and self-advocacy. Level 1 features private, one-on-one Academic Coaching while Level 2 features small group Academic Coaching based on common learning profiles.
  • Academic Gap Year

    An Academic Gap Year at Kents Hill School is the ideal way to sharpen knowledge, nurture personal growth, and evaluate personal and professional goals before college. An individualized program and faculty mentor tackle what students need in order to be successful while rallying around what they love including art, athletics, and extracurricular activities.
  • English Language Support

    Our English Language Support (ELS) program provides targeted language- and skills-based support for students whose first language is not English. Students strengthen their language abilities through an introduction to academic content and fortify their skills as they enter mainstream classes. The program is divided into two tracks: a first-year program that builds language skills and a transitional support program.
