The Reverend Frederick H. Sill, O.H.C. Society

Fr. Frederick H. Sill founded Kent on three fundamental principles—Simplicity of Life, Directness of Purpose, and Self Reliance. These principles have successfully guided our School community for more than a century. 

As a tribute to our Founder, the Alumni Council established The Reverend Frederick H. Sill, O.H.C. Society in 2006. The Sill Society recognizes Kent alumni/ae whose personal achievement and distinguished service bring honor and distinction to themselves and Kent School, especially in terms of how such achievement and service significantly impact and beneficially radiate to the larger community, nation or world. All Alumni/ae of Kent are eligible for consideration, except for those currently serving on the Board of Trustees, the Alumni Council or as an employee of the School. 

The Sill Society Committee will consider nominations annually. For more information about submitting a nomination, please contact Denny Mantegani by phone (860-927-6274) or by email (  Thank you.
