Welcome Letter from Director Lynette Breedlove

breedloveWelcome to The Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science in Kentucky! Thank you for your interest in our remarkable school where students are prepared for futures with infinite possibilities. 

Families are often initially attracted to our school by the outstanding academic opportunities we provide.  Our students finish their last two years of high school while simultaneously starting their first two years in college.  Integrating into Western Kentucky University, our students take all college courses taught by university faculty and have the opportunity to pursue research in their areas of interest.  Most of our students also travel abroad on one of our winter term or summer trips.  The Gatton Academy offers a level of intellectual stimulation and challenge only provided in a collegiate setting.

What our students and their families value most, though, is our community.  The Gatton Academy is a welcoming, nurturing place. We take pride in providing the feeling of a family.  Students support one another in taking on new challenges and developing their independence.  Our community values integrity, compassion, respect, equality, and diversity.  This is a school where students can really be themselves and be accepted. 

I invite you to learn more about us by visiting.  Join us for a Preview Day to meet our students and take a tour.  Don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have any questions.  We are always happy to share information about our school.  The Gatton Academy is an incredible opportunity for students who are ready for more than their high schools can provide. 


Lynette Breedlove, Ph.D.
