1896 school manual and 1899 academic program yearbook for The Kent Place School, a boarding and day school for girls in Summit, New Jersey. In the Fall of 1894, “...Kent Place School for Girls opened its doors to its first students, with the vision of fine academic training and intellectual pursuits already accessible to boys and young men.”¹

The school, led by Principal Sarah Woodman Paul. A.B., was conducted under the direction of The Summit School Company and its board of directors led by President Hamilton Wright Mabie (1846–1916), American author, editor, and critic. The company’s seven-member Board of Visitors to the school included five women.

Together, both booklets show images of the campus buildings, provide lists of the school’s all-female instructors, the school’s course of study, etc. plus information on boarding pupils and terms.
