Second Semester Admission For Class of 2019 
(High School Juniors during the 2017-2018 School Year)

The Gatton Academy has, in the past and on limited basis, granted admission to current high school juniors for the January semester (what is referred to as Second Semester Admission). The Academy will make offers of admission based on the availability of space and quality of applicants. For a student to be admitted, a substantial number of students would need to leave after the first semester by choice or due to academic ineligibility, which is increasingly rare.

Applicants for the Class of 2019 wishing to apply for limited January 2018 Second Semester Admission must

  • be a current resident of the state of Kentucky as stated by the Kentucky Council of Postsecondary Education,

  • be a junior or have achieved junior status as stated by sending school,

  • complete Geometry and Algebra II prior to enrollment, and

  • score a minimum 28 math on the ACT or score a minimum 640 math on the SAT,

  • submit interest form, transcript, and ACT scores prior to December 1, 2017

If you are interested in applying for second semester admission with The Gatton Academy, your first step is to complete the interest form, which you will find below.  

  • ACT/SAT Scores - these are to be sent to Western Kentucky University.  Submit ACT scores to code 1562. Submit SAT scores to code 1901.

  • Official High School Transcript from your freshman and sophomore years, with a schedule of what you are currently taking/have grades for this year.  This needs to be sent to: 
    The Gatton Academy
    Attn: Second Semester Admissions
    1906 College Heights Blvd. #71031
    Bowling Green, KY 42101-1031

Following finals week, The Gatton Academy staff will asses whether there are any spots available to make second semester admission decisions.  If available, we will inform those students who have submitted the online form, their ACT/SAT scores and Official High School Transcript of the opening.  At this time, we will request that the students complete selected essays in order to finish the admissions process.  The admissions committee will review these essays and make selections based off of space.
