College Recruiting
Kent Denver offers opportunities for athletes of all skill levels to pursue their passions, be a part of a team and compete. We also ensure that our most serious athletes with ambitions of playing a sport beyond high school have the resources to get there, and our track record speaks for itself. 

Playing at the Next Level

Every year after graduation, several Kent Denver student-athletes go on to continue their playing careers in college. 

With the help and support of dedicated college counselors, coaches, athletic administrators and advisors, our students receive personalized guidance during the college search process to find a home that’s right for them. 

Celebrating Our Athletes

Every year, Kent Denver looks forward to recognizing senior student-athletes who will be continuing their athletic careers in college. To that end, we have established guidelines for school signing days that align with the official NCAA signing periods.
