During their time at The Episcopal School of Knoxville, students gain a solid academic foundation, as well as develop the character traits and confidence necessary for success in high school and beyond. Red Waller, Middle School Director, and faculty regularly consult with area high schools to make sure that our students are well-prepared for success. The feedback we receive from schools is that our students are extremely well-prepared for high school, whether it is an independent, boarding, or public school. The Middle School Director, along with the faculty, Admissions Director, and Registrar work very hard to help parents and students make informed decisions regarding high school selection and to navigate the high school admissions process. In addition to hosting the Boarding and High School Fair, offering the SSAT and ISEE admissions assessments on campus, and informing you of school visitation days, we will also work with you to determine the best academic fit for your child for high school.
Once you begin the admissions process, you will receive evaluation/recommendation forms and record request forms from the high school. Please leave those forms in the designated folder in the Middle School Office. The faculty will complete those forms, and the Registrar will send academic records to the school.
