Enrichment & Support


The Knox BOOST Program offers support services designed to provide capable, college-bound students with the foundation and skills necessary to develop their abilities and to reach their personal goals for academic achievement and college admission. BOOST is divided into three segments: Executive Functioning, Language, and Math. Students may enter the BOOST program at any time, but most enroll when first admitted to Knox. Due to the structured and sequential nature of the BOOST curriculum, students are encouraged to begin the program at the start of the school year. BOOST classes are taught in a small group setting by qualified learning specialists and meet several times a week. BOOST teachers often foster communication and share pedagogical methodologies within the school community. Students are enrolled upon the recommendation of current documentation/ parental request and/or recommendation from the Head of School.
