The Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science in Kentucky is a public, residential high school for juniors and seniors who have demonstrated a desire to pursue advanced careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields in addition to exceptional educational performance. Instead of spending their junior and senior years in traditional high schools, students enroll in the Gatton Academy and live in Schneider Hall, a uniquely dedicated residence hall. Taking courses offered by Western Kentucky University, their classmates are fellow Gatton Academy students and WKU undergraduate students.
The program, which began in 2007 with 120 students and now numbers 126, is Kentucky's only full tuition paid, residential program for students who are gifted in mathematics and science. The Gatton Academy is one of fifteen state-supported residential high schools with an emphasis in STEM subjects in the United States.
