Our inclusive environment serves grades 6-12 and Post-Graduate. A Knox education provides superior college preparatory academics and boundless experiences with interest-driven clubs, hands-on service learning, multidisciplinary opportunities in the Visual & Performing Arts, and a nationally-competitive Athletics program.
