Three weeks, Six campuses, One unforgettable experience
ABOUT THE ACADEMY
The GEAR UP Kentucky Summer Academy is a three-week residential summer enrichment program on a university campus sponsored by the GEAR UP Kentucky program. Students have a daily schedule of classes taught by college professors and experience life as a college student by staying in a campus dorm, eating in campus dining halls, and interacting with college staff and students. The goal of the program is to help students develop the skills needed for college & career success and create the opportunity to visualize themselves as a future college student. In addition to academic content, students will explore different career and college options, learn how to apply for college & financial aid, and get insight into life on a college campus.
