Introduction and Requirements for Admission

 

The Class of 2016 application deadline has passed. The Class of 2017 application will be released in September.

 

We are excited that you have shown an interest in enrolling at The Carol Martin Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science in Kentucky. The mission of the Gatton Academy is to offer a residential program for bright, highly motivated Kentucky high school students who have demonstrated interests in pursuing advanced careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Before beginning the application process, please ensure you qualify or intend to meet qualifications for admission to the Gatton Academy.

Gatton Academy applicants for the Class of 2016 must

  • be a current resident of the state of Kentucky,
  • be a sophomore or have achieved sophomore status,
  • complete Geometry and Algebra II prior to enrollment,
  • score a minimum 22 math on the ACT or score a minimum 520 math on the SAT, and
  • submit all required materials no later than February 1, 2014

The Academy will also accept applications from current high school juniors for admission in the January 2013 (what is referred to as Second Semester Admission). The Academy will make offers of admission based on the availability of space and quality of applicants. This would require a substantial number of students to leave after the first semester by choice or due to academic ineligibility, which is increasingly rare. Students applying for Class of 2013 Second Semester Admission will follow the same process as students applying as sophomores; however, all materials must be received by Monday, December 12, 2012.

Applicants for the Class of 2015 wishing to apply for limited January 2014 Second Semester Admission must

  • be a current resident of the state of Kentucky,
  • be a junior or have achieved junior status,
  • complete Geometry and Algebra II prior to enrollment,
  • score a minimum 28 math on the ACT or score a minimum 640 math on the SAT, and
  • submit all required materials no later than December 12, 2013
