KeeneFest - About Kent School

Click here for Driving Directions to Kent School.

Kent School is located on 1,533 beautiful acres bordering on the Housatonic River, in Kent, Connecticut, in the picturesque Litchfield Hills of Northwest Connecticut, 55 miles west of Hartford and 78 miles north of New York City. The area abounds with the natural beauty of rural New England, offering many nearby opportunities for hiking, canoeing, bicycling, picnics and shopping for antiques.

It is easily accessible by train, bus, car, or airplane. There are many walking and biking trails on the school property and at nearby Macedonia Brook State Park. Athletic facilities include tennis courts, a boat launching dock on the Housatonic, access to the Appalachian Trail, basketball courts, indoor pool, squash courts, a fitness center, and extensive outdoor playing fields. The accomodations at Kent School are simple dormitory rooms with shared bathrooms. Those interested in day care should call 212-568-5198.

A short walk from the campus, the quaint town of Kent features an active arts community, including numerous galleries and the Kent Art Association. Bull's Bridge, one of two covered bridges in the region, spans the scenic Housatonic River, and can be reached by car or on foot by way of the Appalachian Trail. The nearby Sloane-Stanley Museum is built from the remains of artist and author Eric Sloane's studio. The Kent town center features fine restaurants and unique shops.
