The Knox County Academy is an alternative school administered by the Knox County Regional Office of Education. The KCA has two distinct programs, Day and Evening.

Our Day Program serves enrolled students grades 6-12 from all Knox County middle, junior and high schools. Students are referred by their district schools to the KCA. Transportation is provided by district schools. Call 309-345-0101 between 8 am and 2 pm to speak with Mr. Thierry for more information.

The Evening Program serves students ages 17-21 who are not enrolled in school. Students complete remaining credits needed for graduation in Illinois and earn a high school diploma granted by the KCA. Students provide their own transportation. Call 309-345-022 between noon and 5 pm to speak with Mr. Ward for more information.

Please see the pages for each program for more information.
