Rigorous Academic Training
Through early planning and practice, students gain entrance to the most prestigious school all over North America through examinations such as SSAT, ISEE, HSPT. The main focus of Kent's curriculum will prepare students for the upcoming academic endeavors by developing their test-taking skills along with confidence, discipline, and intellectual excellence necessary to succeed in high school, college, and beyond.
In addition, Kent's comprehensive model of early immersion in advanced persuasive writing and public speaking skill acquisition, organization and planning, speed reading and extensive vocabulary building prepares students to flourish in high school without becoming overwhelmed.
Modern etiquette training
In our globalized world, students need to speak multiple languages and adapt new cultural mores. And to be successful in life, it is necessary to acquire the correct protocols, such as the mannerisms during important meetings and dinner functions. It is also crucial to learn the social cues in mean of developing effective communication skills needed for particular social arenas. This is a mark of distinction that will make your child peerless.
We have learned something working with the intellectually gifted—they enjoy setting and achieving goals. Unfortunately, all too often students succumb to peer pressure and push academic interests to the side. We know teens seek out approval and assurance from their peers. That's why we believe it is good chemistry to bring the successful students together; mentoring is highly effective in creating environment where students are active, assertive and energized to help one another. Kent Prep provides students the opportunity to live with mentors who serve to inspire and instill in a safe and nurturing environment. Our approach helps this young, tech-savvy generation embrace this unique and inspiring leadership training.
