Why Boys?
Research is showing that a boy’s brain develops differently from that of a girl. South Kent School embraces these differences to create a boys-centered curriculum that leads to success.

Hero Path
South Kent School’s education program stresses rigorous academics and personal transformation, drawing out the hero within each young man to foster and develop knowledge, courage and strength of character. We call this the Hero Path and it serves as the fundamental building block towards future success in college, one’s career and family.

Academic Excellence
The focal point of each boy’s Hero Path is based on rigorous academic, physical, and spiritual challenges tailored to the individual student. Our goal is to place each young man into the best college or university that meets his needs.

South Kent’s unprecedented integration of 21st-century technology into the classroom places us as the leader among prep schools. (See article on 21st-Century Technology in the Classroom on
