College Counseling

At Kent Denver, we encourage our students to grow intellectually, and we provide them with an array of activities, from the arts to athletics, and from clubs to service organizations. These opportunities allow students to explore their interests and talents. In order to be ready for the college selection process, Kent Denver students should seek challenges, work hard at their studies, pursue their interests, and enjoy their high school experience.

"I think for most Kent Denver students, it is liberating to know that the student is in control of his/her own college applications."
- Kent Denver Alumnus

 

Kent Denver's College Counseling program empowers students to find the appropriate next step for their continued education and lifelong learning through a process of reflection, research and exploration of options. Here, we work together with students, parents and faculty to guide students in the process of finding schools that will further develop their academic and personal growth. The college search and application process are exciting and involve time and effort. Parents and college counselors play an important role in the college selection process; however, it is the student who plays the primary role.
