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.
Lydia Buzzard of Hopkinsville, Logan Houchens of Crestwood and Peter Kaminski of Owensboro are working under the mentorship of Dr. Uta Ziegler, professor of Computer Science, to develop an app for WKU using Google Glass.
Kelly Lynch of Glasgow and Josh Stewart of Crestwood, both rising seniors at the Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science in Kentucky, represented the 2013-14 WKU Genome Discovery and Exploration class at the 6th Annual SEA-PHAGES scientific symposium.
From research internships to community service projects in their home communities, recent graduates and rising high school seniors from the school are engaging across the Commonwealth, nation and world.
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. As you begin to explore the Academy as an educational opportunity, why not check out our admissions video? Gatton Academy students and staff members share their experiences with the program as we outline academics, student life, research, and admissions.
