The Gatton Academy is a residential program for 120 high school juniors and seniors from Kentucky who have demonstrated talent and interest in pursuing advanced careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Students apply during their sophomore year through a competitive admissions process.
Instead of spending their junior and senior years in traditional high schools, students take courses offered by Western Kentucky University. At the end of two years, students graduate high school in addition to having earned at least 60 college credit hours. Housing, tuition and meals are provided at no cost to ensure this opportunity is available to all qualifying students.
The Gatton Academy will also host a Preview Weekend on the WKU campus on November 5th. Students are encouraged to RSVP online at http://gattonacademy.eventbrite.com to attend the session.
