Student Spending Account
Kent School Lion Card
Every student is issued a Kent School Lion Card which serves as their student ID, spending card, and dorm key card. The Lion Card is valid while your child is actively enrolled at Kent School. The Lion Card is accepted at the School Store and Snack Bar. Other school expenses that will be billed to the Lion Card are: transportation, class/lab fees, postage, testing fees, and music lessons. This card should be pre-funded via "My Kids Spending" (MKS).
Lost or damaged cards will be replaced by visiting the Technology Department at a cost of $25 per card.
My Kids Spending (MKS): Funding for Lion Card
My Kids Spending is a safe and secure website where parents can view and manage their student’s spending account activity at any time and from virtually anywhere. Through the MKS website, parents may deposit funds into their student’s account using a credit card or electronic check. You can also set up the account to auto-fund when the balance is low. To register, visit www.mykidsspending.com/ and click the "Getting Started" link at the top. Enter your contact information, click the register button, and a password will be emailed to you. New student ID number can be found on your Enrollment Agreement. Returning students can find their ID number on the Lion Card. Daily, weekly, monthly, and by-term spending restrictions can be set and changed at any time. See the Student Spending Allowance Form below.
Kent School ATM
An ATM is located outside the School Store for students to access cash. The ATM is available when the Student Center is open, from 7am-10pm. When the Student Center is open, students will be allowed to access cash at a cost of $.90 per transaction. All bank debit and credit cards are accepted. The ATM does not accept the Kent School Lion Card. We encourage students to have a bank ATM/debit card before arriving on campus. There are two banks in town (Webster Bank and Union Savings Bank). If you would like to open an account when you arrive, bank representatives will be on campus to assist you.
