Service and Moving On
South Kent's Sixth Form program involves a balance of four main components: academic performance, the college selection process, school leadership, and service to others.
Sixth Formers are expected to perform at the peak of their abilities as they experience the demands of the Sixth Form year and prepare for college. The boys are asked to strive for academic excellence as critical thinkers, to present clear and thoughtful oral and written communications, and to become sophisticated problem solvers. Sixth Form students lead the campus jobs program, take on the responsibilities of dorm supervision, and assume leadership roles in athletic teams and community service activities. Our service begins on campus and extends to the local, national, and world communities.
The 5th, 6th, and PG Forms are divided into heterogeneous groupings called "affinity" groups. Over the course of the year, each affinity group will participate in different "Calls" designed to guide young men along their Hero's Journey by challenging them to step outside their "comfort zones" in several ways and instilling commitment and responsibility. Visit our Affinity Group page for more information.
In the Sixth Form, you will:
- Work closely with the College Adviser to put together the best possible profile for your post-secondary education.
- Be challenged with new and exciting physical, intellectual, and emotional experiences.
- Take leadership roles in campus activities and service projects.
Sixth Form and Post Graduate Course Offerings:
- English IV
- Advanced Placement English IV
All Sixth Formers and Post Graduates must take English IV or AP English IV. In addition to their English class, we expect Sixth Formers to pursue a traditional preparatory school twelfth grade curriculum that includes upper-level courses in science, mathematics, a foreign language, and the arts.
