Opening Doors to a Kent Education
It was the vision of Kent’s founder, Father Frederick Herbert Sill, to build a school where students "of slender means could gain an education second to none.” To this day, Kent remains true to Father Sill’s vision by maintaining a generous financial aid budget. Kent seeks to provide its extraordinary educational opportunity to bright, motivated and talented students, regardless of one’s ability to pay.
Our awards range from $5000 up to the full cost of tuition depending upon each family’s individual financial circumstances and eligibility for merit aid as determined by the Admissions Committee.

Through a handful of Academic Scholarships, Kent seeks to recognize the best and brightest of our applicants who do not necessarily have financial need. Merit scholarships are awarded according to specific competitive applicant-qualifying criteria and do not require an additional application beyond the standard application for admission. Recipients are identified by the Admissions Committee and qualifying students are notified that they have been offered an Academic Scholarship at the same time they receive their offer of admission.
