Boarding at The Knox School is designed to prepare students for dormitory living in college. Community living requires courteous consideration for the safety, health and well-being of everyone on the School campus. The ability to compromise and respect the rights of others are essential aspects of our community. Alumnae have stated that the personal growth, as well as the character development they experienced as boarding students at The Knox School was fundamental in preparing them for college.
