Preparing to Apply
Applying to college is an exciting part of starting the next chapter in your life, but the process can also be a little intimidating. What's expected? What will set you apart? What is Kenyon looking for in a student?
While each student brings a unique perspective to Kenyon, there are a number of similar characteristics we seek. We look for people who are bright, who aren't afraid to ask questions, and who are well informed. They're at the top of their classes, play sports, volunteer, write zines, paint, or play in a band. Kenyon students are achievers but are also creative and know the value of community.
If this sounds like you, you'll probably feel right at home here.
Recommendations for high school students applying to Kenyon:
We require a minimum of 18 units of academic work in a college-preparatory program. (One unit is the equivalent of one two-semester course or two one-semester courses.) We encourage students to take advantage of AP, IB, or honor-level courses where they are offered. Recommended course units include:
4 in English
4 in mathematics (ideally up to calculus)
4 in a single foreign language
4 in science (including biology, chemistry, and physics)
4 in social studies
The Office of Admissions recommends, but does not require, an interview.
