Gatton Academy is amazing. Their study abroad programs are very immersive and fairly easy to participate in. The Academy tries its best to financially aid any student who can't participate in a certain activity for financial reasons. The dorms are also a lot better than most college dorms. Each floor becomes like a family, and there are many group activities planned throughout the year. Unfortunately, there have been accounts of underage drinking and smoking weed. It is still relatively better than a traditional high school.

The Gatton Academy is a place like no other; students are able to take finish their final two years of high school taking only college courses at Western Kentucky University. There are an abundance of opportunities offered to students, from undergraduate research to study abroad. The staff supports students in achieving their goals while at The Academy. Most students experience significant amounts of personal and academic growth during their time at Gatton. However, the intensity and rigor of the environment does lead to greater than normal levels of stress among students.
The Gatton Academy is a great school and immerses students into a multitude of opportunities. It’s challenging, but if you work hard, it’ll be a great experience!
