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.
Gretchen Walch represented the 2012-13 WKU Genome Discovery and Exploration class at the 5th Annual SEA-PHAGES (Science Education Alliance – Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics and Evolutionary Science) scientific symposium, sponsored by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
Students from the Carol Martin Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science in Kentucky are prepared for a busy summer. From research internships to shadowing professionals in their home communities, recent graduates and rising high school seniors from the school are following their passions in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) this summer.
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.
