The basic criteria for admission center on an applicant's potential for success at Kenyon. Although results of the SAT or ACT are considered, more emphasis is placed on the candidate's secondary-school courses, grades, and class rank, as well as counselor and teacher recommendations, the nature of the secondary school, and the candidate's personal statement.
This holistic approach to application evaluation allows us to look at many aspects of each student and not simply a set of numbers. After all, you're much more than a number at Kenyon. We hope you'll add a vibrant voice to our small community, and enliven our lives with your time in Gambier, just as we expect this community of scholars to enrich the many elements of your life.
