Each year we are delighted to meet students from schools throughout Denver and beyond. Our selective Admission process helps ensure Kent Denver remains a small, vibrant, inclusive learning community filled with students who are curious, intelligent, determined and kind.

Our goal is to identify the most capable and highly motivated students. Over the years, we have discovered that the students who succeed and benefit most from a Kent Denver education are those who are committed to contributing positively to school life and believe wholeheartedly in our goal of excellence in scholarship and character.

Important Information About the 2021-22 School Year

The application deadline for the 2021-22 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. 25, 2021, the first day of the 2021-22 school year.

The application process for the wait pool is the same as the process used during our regular admission cycle, which is detailed below. Please contact Holly Crittenden—by email or phone at 303-770-7660 x433—before beginning the process.
