Recruitment and Preview Days


Preview Days

We highly encourage families to consider attending one of our Preview Days held on the WKU campus.  Preview Days are a wonderful opportunity for prospective applicants and their families to meet with current Gatton Academy students and their parents, visit our campus, and gain a better understanding of student life at The Gatton Academy. 

 

High School and Community Information Sessions

We are currently in the planning process for the fall of 2018.  As visits are planned or once we visit a school, we note both the school/community and the date below.

If you would like a representative to attend your area or your high school, email Zack Ryle.

2018 - 2019 Visits to Counselors

We also visit schools and talk to Guidance Counselors and Administrators while we are on the road.  During these visits, we hand out our newest materials, answer any questions they may have, and, at times, have the opportunity to talk to current students who are interested.  

Details about these visits will be released in the fall.
