Knox students enter the Upper School prepared with the necessary foundations to begin their college preparatory course of study. Coursework and independent work becomes more rigorous, and students are expected to manage their time between academics, the arts, athletics and socialization effectively and appropriately. Our advisory program provides support for students in this area; students who need greater academic and organizational support may be invited to enroll in our BOOST program. Upper School students have more than a dozen Advanced Placement (AP) course offerings from which to choose, in addition to academic writing courses to enhance their skills in writing across the curriculum.

Specialized courses such as Graduate Seminar and Graduate Capstone Project help to prepare students for the rigors of college.
