Kent Denver Institutes
In Kent Denver's Institutes, teachers, academic programs, extracurricular offerings, student-directed study and dynamic learning spaces support students’ quest to learn more about what inspires them.
The Institute approach emphasizes choice. Students choose whether or not to participate and what to pursue. Age- and grade-appropriate options ensure students can follow their interests throughout their seven-year Kent Denver journey.
- Institutes in the Middle School complement the curriculum with options such as research opportunities, electives and service learning.
- Institutes in the Upper School reflect students’ maturity, self-awareness, ability to self-advocate and aptitude for weaving disparate threads of knowledge into a cohesive, dynamic whole. Students have supportive venues in which to pursue their interests and, in some cases, forge paths for future career endeavors.
The Hunt Family Institute teaches students how to bring to life ideas that add value to the world. Both Middle and Upper School students will experience the essence of entrepreneurship: taking direct action to create a product or service and advancing it.
Our program will inspire, guide and support students through the process of identifying problems, implementing solutions and learning from failure and success.
