The Pursuit of Knowledge

Excellence in education is important in Galesburg, a city expressly founded as the home of Knox College, one of the nation’s outstanding liberal arts colleges.

Knox is an independent environment where students are encouraged to take on their own research projects, participate in off-campus programs and even design their own majors. Most of all, Knox is dedicated to providing an experience that best prepares students for successful careers and a lifetime of learning.

You’ll also find strong public schools in the city and its surrounding communities. Carl Sandburg College, the regional community college based in Galesburg, offers a broad array of college transfer and vocational-technical programs. Sandburg’s mission is to provide accessible, quality education in a caring environment by keeping the learner's needs at the center of decision making and by working in partnership with communities of the college district.
