Sixth-Grade Teaching Fellowships

Each year, students from approximately 30 Metro Denver schools arrive on Kent Denver’s campus as members of our newest sixth-grade class.

What awaits these students during their Kent Denver journey are unparalleled learning opportunities inside the classroom and across our 220-acre campus; instruction from faculty whom, we believe, are the best in the region; local, national and international class trips; deep, meaningful friendships; and exceptional support as they begin the most exciting, challenging, transformative period in their lives. Sixth grade is the entry point for this journey, and sixth-grade fellows have an integral role in this important phase of students’ development.

The Kent Denver sixth-grade teaching fellowship affords recent college graduates or those pursuing an advanced degree an opportunity to work side-by-side with our Middle School faculty.

Teaching fellows receive close supervision and support and are involved in all aspects of the sixth-grade program. Responsibilities include:

  • Opportunities to teach with experienced teachers and on their own
  • Curriculum planning, test design, parent consultations and student mentoring
  • Sixth-grade writing program instruction
