One person of principle can always make a difference.

"We believe that by living our core values - altruism, compassion, courage, friendship, honesty, perseverance, responsibility, scholarship, sportsmanship, and tolerance that together form leadership - young women and men will grow into future leaders."

- Christopher S. Cheney
Head of School

"I first began learning to trust my instincts and believe in myself at Kents Hill School. It was there that I gained confidence and started to figure out who I am."

Founder and CEO, House of Wale

"Everyone is so genuine. People here don't care about how popular and slick you are. They care about you as a person - who you really are without being compared to anyone else. Your teachers and classmates want you to be the best version of yourself ... My friends, teachers, and coaches have drastically impacted my life."

- Stuart Vine '18
Student Body President
