Academic Resource Center

Academic Resource Center

In Kent's Academic Resource Center (ARC), students learn how to set their own goals, organize their academic priorities, and seek help when questions arise.

The ARC is available to all Kent students, either for consultation sessions or regularly scheduled meetings.

Strategic Support

In line with Kent's motto—Simplicity of Life, Directness of Purpose, and Self-Reliance—the Academic Resource Center focuses not on content-specific help but on supporting students in learning and practicing how to: 
● Implement effective techniques for reading, note-taking, studying, and time management. 
● Set and achieve academic goals with specific action plans. 
● Apply feedback at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming and outlining to drafting and revising. 
● Ask the right questions, self-advocate, and communicate ideas in content-area classes. 

Help When You Need It

Located on the second floor of the library, the ARC is open at two different times each day. During the academic day, students schedule 1:1 meetings to practice study techniques, learning strategies, time management skills, and more. At night, teachers are available for writing and math help. Students can schedule an appointment, or faculty may refer a student for required visits.

To learn more about the academic support program at Kent, please contact Academic Resource Center Director Bethany Booth.

Accommodations and Accessibility

Kent School strives to provide equal access to all programs and services in compliance with the ADA. Students with physical disabilities and/or learning differences are encouraged to seek support from the School to bolster their success.

Upon enrolling in Kent School, students and their parents/guardians are encouraged to submit all supporting documentation for the student’s physical and learning needs. A Learning Specialist will then evaluate the student’s documentation with the purpose of creating a learning support plan. College Board, ACT, and other standardized testing accommodations require a separate application and approval process to the Kent-specific accommodations described above. 

Students with accommodations are strongly encouraged to schedule ARC appointments to learn about resources and supports, including assistive technology, that are available at Kent.
