High School and Community Information Sessions

We are currently in the planning process for the fall of 2017.  As visits are planned or once we visit a school, we note both the school/community and the date below.

2017 - 2018 Sessions

The Gatton Academy will also be in 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.
