Why Support Kents Hill School?

An excellent, personalized education.

Since its founding in 1824, Kents Hill has offered a superb college preparatory education in a nurturing, supportive setting for its students.

Access and diversity.

Despite a modest endowment, Kents Hill has traditionally provided some level of financial assistance to at least 50 percent of its students, a much higher proportion than many of its competitors. We are proud of this tradition of offering an education to a diverse population - geographically, economically, and socially.

Underwriting education for all.

Tuition typically covers only 80 percent of Kents Hill's operating costs. The balance comes mainly from Kents Hill Fund gifts. Your support helps the school maintain the margin of excellence in its programs for students and faculty and in maintaining the campus.

A historic campus.

Kents Hill has an impressive 196-year history. Our beautiful 400-acre campus and cherished buildings are part of this legacy. Gifts to Kents Hill enable us to continually improve and upgrade our campus in order to keep pace with the needs of our students in an ever-changing world.

Your gift is meaningful and important.

Gifts both large and small truly do mean a great deal more to Kents Hill than to many heavily endowed independent schools and colleges.

The in-person graduation ceremony for the Class of 2021 was a moment of catharsis and celebration for our entire community. After 15 months of COVID-19 policies which tested each of us in ways we have never been before, we were able to gather, give hugs, and see smiles. Tears were shed and joy was felt. We are not ready to stop celebrating, so for those who would like to continue alongside us, here are some of the top moments from the Commencement.

In so many ways Kents Hill School is thankful. Thankful for our students and families. Thankful to our alumni. Thankful for our hardworking, caring faculty and staff. And also (with some noted overlap!) to the donors that help us continue to make education accessible to those who seek it. However, we want to make sure you understand the importance of every gift, no matter the size.
