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. 

 

Gatton Blitz

During the first 2 to 3 weeks of September, members of The Gatton Academy's staff travel the state to visit schools and talk to Guidance Counselors and Administrators.  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.

High School and Community Information Sessions

We are currently in the planning process for the fall of 2019.  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, please email us.

2020 - 2021 Sessions

Each year, The Gatton Academy visits high schools and communities around the Commonwealth of Kentucky during the fall and spring semesters.  Information sessions are a wonderful opportunity to speak with Gatton Academy representatives without having to travel to Bowling Green.

The following information sessions (when scheduled), which could be school-day visits, lunchroom visits, or evening sessions with parents and students, will be listed below:
