Knox seeks students who are active, engaged learners. We value students who demonstrate their appreciation for a variety of educational experiences, both in and out of the classroom. Our admission counselors consider you as an individual when making our admission decisions.

Applicants should be well prepared for the rigors of a Knox education. We encourage you to take full advantage of opportunities available at your high school and to challenge yourself academically, which could include taking honors, Advanced Placement (AP), and International Baccalaureate (IB) courses when available.

While not required for most applicants, we strongly recommend an interview with one of our admission counselors. Interviews are a wonderful way for us to get to know you, and an even better way for you to discover the Human-Powered Knox Experience. Interviews are available on-campus, in locations across the country, by phone, or via the internet. Contact the Office of Admission to schedule an interview—or see if we're offering interviews in your area.
