“The Commonwealth is full of outstanding students and we are thrilled to welcome 102 of them to the Gatton Class of 2022. This class, like those who have come before them, is from all across the state and made up of students with wide ranging interests in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields,” said Director of The Gatton Academy, Dr. Lynette Breedlove. “There are always more talented students searching for advanced learning opportunities than we can serve. We recognize that public schools in Kentucky are working hard to find innovative ways to support the needs of all their students.”
The goal of The Gatton Academy is to enable Kentucky’s exceptional young scientists and mathematicians to learn in an environment that offers advanced educational opportunities, preparing them for leadership roles in Kentucky. Moreover, The Gatton Academy assists in preparing Kentucky to compete in a knowledge-based economy by increasing the number of scientists and engineers who live and work in the state.
