If you are completing your high school education via home schooling, you should apply as a home schooled student. If you are not a citizen or permanent resident of the United States, you should apply as an International Applicant. (Undocumented immigrants residing in the U.S. should apply as Home Schooled Applicants.)
Secondary School Report* and Transcript*
On your application, you can list a parent as your school counselor, and that parent can complete the School Report. Your parent should also provide a transcript or other detailed documentation which lists the subjects studied each year, a description of each course of study, and major texts used or literature read.
On your application, identify a teacher to submit a recommendation. This can be provided by a parent or by another instructor of your academic courses.
An interview with an admission counselor is required for home schooled applicants. If you are not able to visit campus or meet with an admission counselor in your area before the application deadline, we are also able to conduct interviews by phone or the internet. Contact the Office of Admission to schedule an interview.
ACT or SAT Scores
Test scores should be submitted directly from the testing agency to the Knox College Office of Admission.
*A note on school reports, recommendations, and transcripts: After identifying your counselor and teacher on your application, they will be invited to complete their forms online. If they prefer to mail your School Report, Mid Year Report, transcript, and/or recommendations, they can be mailed directly to the Knox College Office of Admission.
