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 1,060 of Kentucky's brightest rising high school seniors will be conducted this summer on three college campuses: Morehead State University in Morehead, Murray State University in Murray, and Northern Kentucky University in Highland Heights.

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.
