THE GATTON ACADEMY OF MATHEMATICS
AND SCIENCE IN KENTUCKY

The Gatton Academy, founded in 2007, is a statewide residential school for high achieving high school juniors and seniors interested in careers in STEM fields. It is located on the campus of Western Kentucky University where Academy students take university courses taught by university faculty. Newsweek has named the Gatton Academy the number one public high school in the United States in both 2012 and 2013.

The academic rigor of the Gatton Academy challenges its students to excel at the highest levels, while drawing connections between the classroom and real-world research options. In addition to their coursework, Academy students have one-on-one mentorships with university faculty through research projects conducted completely outside of the classroom. 100% of Gatton Academy students have matriculated to a 4-year college or university; the Academy has had 54 National Merit Semifinalists and National Achievement Scholars to date; in the class of 2014, 80% of the students have had international travel experience and 73% have presented their research at academic conferences.
