Imagine living and learning in an inclusive community in which people thrive in an environment where taking risks is revered and achieving more than one ever imagined is a reality.  Imagine athletes performing in musicals and choir, and artists being competitive fencers. Imagine students affectionately calling their school campus their “home beside the shore” where they have experiences that impact their lives in ways they never dreamed possible. Imagine students graduating high school with the self-confidence to try new things, the work ethic to thrive in a college or university and with a  true belief in the power of their own efforts. You don’t have to imagine or look any further than The Knox School; all of these images are what comprise the “Knox Difference.” 
The Knox School, located in Saint James on Long Island’s North Shore, is a student-centered, college preparatory school serving local day students and domestic and international boarding students in grades 6-12 and PG. Our students hail from11 countries and  the continental U.S., with half from Long Island and the Tristate area. Our team of administrators and educators are proud of the diversity and talent these young men and women bring to the School, and work tirelessly to prepare them for the challenges they will face in the ever-changing world in which we live. With unique programs in STEM, Crew, Equestrian, Fencing, Prep Basketball, Visual and Performing Arts, our students receive an education like no other, and our students are part of something special.
