Early Admission (for High School Juniors)
Exceptionally qualified and mature students may apply for admission after three years of secondary school work. To apply for early admission, you must complete all procedures and satisfy all expectations for regular first-year admission. You should include a letter explaining your reasons for entering college early, and your college counselor must also submit a statement supporting your early admission.
A Note about Test Scores
The submission of SAT I or ACT scores is optional for most applicants. Knox adopted this policy so that you can decide for yourself if your scores adequately reflect your abilities and potential for success in college. There is no score above which you should decide to submit your scores. If you elect to provide your scores, they will be considered and can sometimes help us in assessing your abilities more fully. Scores can be submitted either directly from the testing agency or on your official secondary school transcript.
Note: Home-schooled applicants or candidates applying from secondary schools that do not provide grades are asked to submit results from one or more standardized test, such as SAT I, SAT II, ACT, AP or IB examination results, or grades from college courses.
