Kent School to Hosts Secondary School Fair

On Wednesday, October 4, Kent School will host a secondary school fair for students in Grades Six, Seven and Eight and their parents or guardians. Kent School’s secondary school fair is open to all families in the area and there is no fee to attend. The event will be held in the M. V. “Mike” Williams Gymnasium from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Several independent and area public schools, both day schools and boarding schools are participating including The Gunston School, The Hill School, McDonogh School, Mercersburg Academy, Oldfields School, Pomfret School, St. Andrew’s School, St. James School, St. Timothy’s School, Woodberry Forest School, and Kent County High School.

According to Tricia Cammerzell, Assistant Head of School for Advancement, “this year, we are delighted to welcome secondary schools from Virginia to Massachusetts. The purpose of the fair is to bring as many secondary schools together in one place at one time so students and parents can get an overview of the wonderful regional options for high school. This is an opportunity for families to speak with admission representatives and decide if they want to delve further into the admission process for a particular school.”

The secondary school process at Kent School is an intentional one that includes an academically rigorous program coupled with faculty support, small class discussions and student accountability. Nancy Mugele, Head of Kent School said, “At Kent School we are proud of the work we do for each student to prepare them for success in their chosen high school. We conduct mock interviews, create classroom situations similar to high school classes and write in-depth recommendations. As stated in our mission, ‘We are research-driven and committed to nurturing our students’ potential for active citizenship in a connected world through academic, artistic, athletic, and moral excellence.’The secondary school fair is an important tool to help guide students and parents through the discovery, application and enrollment process.”
