We are very pleased that Cayla is so happy at Kent. It seems that she has finally found her “home.” It’s such a pleasure to pick her up each day & see her smiling & laughing. And I know it has everything to do with the nurturing “family” environment at Kent! As her grandmother, I am so grateful!
Love this place!! Dr.Jane’s excellent administration and guidance gave this place a great start. Add to that some fantastic and caring teachers and you have a great place to learn. I recommend this for any parent looking for a better school for their kids!!
A wonderful learning community where you child is treated individually and not like a number. Dr. Robinson’s vision is clear, and the staff, students, and parents get a quality experience! Both my children attend and we love it!

My daughter has only been here a few weeks and I can already see the change in attitude. The hands on, one-on-one approach to teaching is fantastic. Cannot wait to update this recommendation as the year continues.

I cannot say enough good things about Kent Academy! While it was important to find a school that supported our daughters’s academic needs, it was more important to find a place where she was cared for and loved as an individual. Kent fit the bill for both! This will be our 7th year at Kent. We attended the Kent Academy for middle school and we are now part of the Kent Facilitation Group for high school. Dr. Jane Robinson, the Director, is phenomenal and has worked hard to create a place where students and families feel at home. I know that we certainly do! If you are searching for a place where what your child actually learns is more important then their test scores, this could be the place for you!

Not all children fit easily and readily to society’s expectations, especially when it comes to school. As many of you know we’ve had an uphill battle finding the right fit for our daughter. Public school provides the social outlet she loves but the curriculum churned ahead at a pace that just killed her self esteem, Montessori’s lack of structure wasn’t a fit and left her floundering and full of anxiety. Home school would have strained our mother / daughter relationship. We have toured what feels like every school in Tampa and Charlotte looking for a fit. Many amazing schools, some rejections that hurt, many HIGH HIGH tuition costs. None of which felt right for our kids. The solution is different for every family. For us the solution for right now is Kent Academy. This is a hidden gem in the Dilworth neighborhood of Charlotte. They provide the right balance of nurturing and challenge in a truly small and individualized setting. The staff at this school are honestly serving an important need in the Charlotte community and I am forever grateful to them. If you speak to other parents there they will echo my sentiments.
