History

South Kent School offers an innovative, project-based program with an emphasis on applied technology, sustainability, environmental studies & experiential learning. South Kent's flagship program, The Center for Innovation, combines ecological and environmental studies focusing on sustainability and applied technology.

South Kent was the first prep school in New England to institute a successful 1-to-1 iPad program, and currently has a 99% e-textbook adoption rate. Multiple advanced and college-credit courses are offered in the areas of English, Economics, Math, Science, Pre-Engineering, Physics and more.

The property adjacent to the current SKS campus provides the site for a project-based curriculum. Boys have the opportunity to work on world impacting initiatives in the areas of alternative & renewable energy sources and ecological stewardship.

The Advanced Media Group (AMG) offers boys the opportunity to explore the world of digital entrepreneurship and web-casting.

Outdoor education, community service, and student activities augment academic coursework. A 5:1 student/teacher ratio; recent enhancements in dormitories, the installations of SMARTBOARDS, a newly expanded arts facility; and a strong leadership program enable each student to develop his individual strengths and interests.

South Kent also offers high level athletics for boys who are interested in pursuing goals in particular sports. Advanced training techniques, outstanding facilities and top level coaching provide the boys with the most optimal environment for success. Many South Kent graduates have continued to compete at the collegiate level while a select few have continued to play at the professional level.
