Extraordinary Educational Experiences
Sun Devils learn by doing. Kent Denver values self-directed learning where students are engaged, active participants in the classroom. Every graduate will be a well-rounded, passionate learner.

Extraordinary Education Defined

Our seven-year, liberal arts program provides a comprehensive foundation for higher education based in mastery of skills. We aspire to equip each student with the scholarship, character, focus and grit to excel here—then successfully navigate the transition from our community to college and from college to a full, meaningful, self-determined life.

While at Kent Denver, students can be who they want to be. They are given agency to explore their interests, talents and passions. There are no intellectual or creative limits here. As a result, students often achieve, then surpass, their own expectations. Students are seen, heard and supported every step of the way—ensuring every Sun Devils feels a sense of belonging that extends long after graduation.

Kent Denver fostered my ability to be critical and inquisitive of the systems around me. The fantastic teachers at Kent saw my potential and helped me develop a range of skills to which I owe a great deal of my success; for that, I am eternally grateful.” Tori Harwell '20 Rhodes Scholar
