Statement of Curriculum

​The Governor's Scholars Program is predicated upon the belief that one of the Commonwealth's greatest resources is its academically talented young people. Consequently, a five-week summer program for approximately 1,020 of Kentucky's brightest rising high school seniors will be conducted this summer on three college campuses:  Centre College in Danville, Morehead State University in Morehead, and Murray State Univeristy in Murray.​

The emphasis of the Governor's Scholars Program is on the students' development of critical thinking, adaptability, creativity, widened horizons, future-orientation, and constructive responses to the ambiguities of life. The curriculum of the Governor's Scholars Program has been built with the recognition that talented students have a wide variety of interests and concerns. The curriculum provides opportunities to develop both general and specific intellectual skills and talents.
