Kent Academy is a small private school located in the Dilworth neighborhood of Charlotte. Our mission is to provide a small school environment with an individualized and integrated curriculum at a more affordable price. We want to reach families who feel this smaller, more personal school setting would benefit their child. We educate the gifted child as well as children with learning disabilities. If you have a child who would flourish in a smaller, more focused setting, then Kent Academy may be a great resource. We accept applications year-round. Please call our office at 704-996-8283 for more information or contact us to schedule a visit. 


Kent Academy offers Kindergarten to 8th grade as well as our High School Co-Op (9th-12th grade).
