How to Apply for Kent Denver's Wait Pool
The application deadline for the 2019-20 school year has passed, however we invite you to apply for a place in our wait pool.
The Kent Denver wait pool is not a ranked list, which means all applicants are considered should a spot in one of our classes for the coming school year become available. The wait pool will remain active until Aug. 22, 2019, the first day of the 2019-20 school year.
The application process for the wait pool is the same as the process used during regular admission cycle. You can learn more about the steps here. When you are ready to begin, submit an application using our online portal. The standard $60 fee has been waived for all wait pool applications.
Admission Timeline for 2019-20
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.
Prospective Upper School students will also join classes with current students during their campus visit, and prospective Middle School students will be invited to return to campus to experience a day in the life at Kent Denver.
