Kent Denver School is committed to enrolling a socio-economically diverse student body. Through the generous contributions of Kent Denver families, friends of the school, auxiliary programs, and investment income, the school offers some $2.3 million in tuition assistance to about 22% of the student body each year.
Applying for tuition assistance does not affect one's chances for admission; applicants are accepted for admission on a need-blind basis. Once accepted, a student's financial need is determined using the guidelines of FACTS (Grant & Aid Assessment service) and Kent Denver's own policies. Financial aid awards are granted on the basis of need; there are no academic or athletic scholarships.

Because Kent Denver School's expenses for each enrolled student are not reduced if a student withdraws, the school cannot forfeit tuition paid or cancel charges if the student leaves for any reason. A tuition refund plan is offered to assist parents with this financial obligation and is available at the time of the first tuition billing at a nominal cost. Click here to learn more.
Kent Denver is the proud recipient of a $2 million grant from the Malone Family Foundation. This grant enables us to award scholarships (each up to 100% of tuition and school-related costs) to five-to-seven exceptional Malone Scholars each year. Kent Denver was one of four schools nationwide to be honored with an endowment from the Malone Family Foundation in 2006. The Malone Scholar Endowment Fund significantly increases Kent Denver’s ability to offer scholarships and school-related expenses to exceptionally motivated and capable students with financial need in grades seven through 12. Kent Denver was chosen to receive this generous gift based on high academic caliber, quality of school staff, attention to individual student needs, interests and talents, financial strength and stability, a commitment to financial aid and an economically, culturally, ethnically and socially diverse population.
