As the Assistant Head of School for Student Life, it is my responsibility to look at the totality of your co-curricular experience. I work closely with the directors of the various components of the student life team to design programs and develop policies to make sure the student experience is affirming, growth-oriented, and responsive to the dynamic needs of our students.
Rene Davis, Assistant Head of School for Student Life
Growth and skill development are centered in all domains of the Kents Hill experience. Student clubs and activities provide a venue for students to explore and nurture their interests and develop hands-on experience in public speaking, conflict resolution, and leadership.
Students are encouraged to explore their interests, try something new, and grow from success and failure. Advisors serve as anchors to the community, helping students connect the dots and create an academic plan that is personalized and surrounded with support.
Food nurtures the soul and keeps an active Husky fueled and on the move. The Bibby and Harold Alfond Dining Commons serves as a central hub where faculty, staff, and students break bread, play, and enjoy the company of community.
Diversity, Equity, and Belonging
Knowing that your identity is centered in the Kents Hill experience guides our inclusive practices. Diversity, equity, and belonging are inextricably linked at Kents Hill, which pushes us to acknowledge and respond to identity-based disparities facing our people and communities.
Sports and activities at Kents Hill are designed to help students hone skills, be accountable to themselves and others, and develop grit and the courage to face challenges head-on.
Health and Wellness
Whether it concerns sleep, physical injury, emotional and mental health, or nutrition, the Health Center team is available to students to support their growth and wellbeing in mind and body.
More than a bed and a desk, campus housing provides community spaces where students rest, relax, and make friends.
The ins and outs to the rules and expectations support students’ making decisions that personalize their academic and social experience.
