Visiting Campus


Inside the classroom, Knox faculty provide students with fresh, interesting, interactive, and powerful learning experiences. Outside of the classroom, our students take part in an array of special events and traditions that inject excitement into campus life that unify and energize the school community. A visit to campus is the best way to experience this engaging and meaningful learning environment, and all the spirit, traditions, and fun happening at our "Home Beside the Shore."

Scheduling a Visit to Campus

Before scheduling your campus visit, please make sure you have completed our online inquiry form, so we can prepare for your time on campus. To schedule your campus visit please call the admissions office at 631-686-1600 ext. 414 or email admissions@knoxschool.org. Tours are available Monday through Friday from 9:00am – 2:00pm. Please plan on spending about two hours with us on campus.

What to Expect When You Visit The Knox School

As part of your visit, a student ambassador will give you a walking tour of campus. The tour lasts about 45 minutes. After your tour, both you and your parents will meet with an Admissions Officer for a conversation that typically lasts 30-40 minutes. The goal of the conversation is to learn more about you and your interests. After your conversation, we will sit down with your parents to answer any questions they may have about Knox. The student interview is a required part of the application process.

We look forward to meeting you and having your family spend time on campus with us!
