While many high school students and graduates are spending their summer getting ready for college or enjoying weeks on the beach, Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science in Kentucky students and recent alumni will spend the coming weeks academically engaged, building off their experiences at the Gatton Academy.
More than half of the current Academy students and recent alumni have plans to participate in an academic or career exploration during the months of June, July and August that will take place across the world.
“This summer, Gatton Academy students’ plans range from internships in their own Kentucky backyards to research experiences than span from the east coast to adventures abroad,” said Derick Strode, the Academy’s coordinator for research, internships and scholarships. “Gatton Academy students will be on several continents this summer, collecting experiences that will propel them to higher achievements.”
