3 Gatton Students Recognized by Goldwater Scholar Program

Atypical High School

We're not typical high school students. Our junior and senior years are spent at Western Kentucky University taking college classes in math, science, and lots of other subjects. While many students are looking for their locker combination, we're searching for alternative fuels and a cure for cancer. We don't have an 8 a.m. bell or homeroom, but we'll finish high school with over 60 hours of college credit. Our home on campus is Schneider Hall, an awesome place to live and learn with friends. Best of all, as a student at the Gatton Academy, tuition, housing, and meals come at no cost to us or our families.

A typical high? No. Atypical? Definitely.

What is Life Like as an Academy Student?


There's nothing quite like experiencing the unique environment of the Gatton Academy first hand. For that, we host several Preview Weekends throughout the fall and winter.
