How to Apply to Kent Denver for the Upcoming, 2018–19 School Year
Each year, we welcome more than 120 new students who will contribute to our community of curious, talented, motivated and kind learners. Our students love to learn and take care of each other. They aspire to make a difference.
Our customized Admission process allows us to meet you and your family—and introduce you to our faculty and students, our core values and traditions, and our beautiful 200-acre campus. We are fortunate to have students from more than 100 schools visit us every year.
The best way to learn about our school is to schedule a campus visit. This visit includes a campus tour led by a student or current parent, and a family interview with a member of the Admission team.
After the interview, prospective students will be invited to return to campus for a customized “visit day” and to experience a day in the life at Kent Denver.
We invite you to explore our website and discover more about our school. The Admission process begins early—in the fall before the year of attendance—so we encourage you to take note of key Admission dates for the 2017–18 school year:
