Welcome, and thanks for visiting our website!
Whether you are a prospective applicant developing first impressions or an alum in search of one of your classmates, we are glad that you are here. This site originally was designed and operated by Kent Denver students, which tells a lot about our school — we like to empower our students in tangible ways. We believe that every student has distinct interests and talents, and our community is strengthened by the active support we offer each other. Current students and alumni remark on how this community truly focuses on bringing out the best in each member and never loses site of the fact that doing your best should be a lot of fun.
At Kent Denver, you will find the essential components of a great school: a sense of purpose, a sense of belonging, and a sense of challenge. We enjoy some of the very best teaching and programs to be found anywhere in the United States. Since our founding in 1922, we have successfully emphasized excellence in scholarship and character, and our many surveys of parents and alumni all reveal the same thing: Our graduates thrive in college and beyond because they are well-prepared and draw upon their strong Kent Denver friendships and networks throughout their lives.
While electronic communication can be both convenient and comprehensive, I invite you to engage with the people who are Kent Denver. I am very proud of our students, parents, faculty, and graduates. They can tell our story in a meaningful way, covering a wide range of accomplishments while sharing a strong sense of character and commitment to our core values of Integrity, Respect, Personal Growth, Community, and Wisdom.
Our students regularly earn regional and national recognition and awards, and, more important, they also care deeply about the quality of life of others. Our students actively explore teaching and mentoring through our Breakthrough Kent Denver program, serving and empowering hundreds of Denver middle school students, and they volunteer in a wide variety of service organizations in Denver and around the world.

Over the last 16 years, I have seen what the faculty and programs of Kent Denver are capable of through the eyes of my son and the many alumni who return to share exciting news of what they are up to, personally and professionally. There is a consistent theme of appreciation for the many individuals who made their school years so engaging and worthwhile.
As one alumna said to me, “You only get one shot at school, and I am thankful mine was here.”
I look forward to saying hello to you in person.
