Governor’s Scholars Program

Two Highlands Latin Seniors were accepted to the Governor’s Scholar’s Program, the maximum allowed for small schools. The Governor’s Scholars Program is a highly competitive summer program in which students spend five weeks studying at one of three in-state college campuses. GSP is completely paid for by the governor’s office and donors.  Students who complete the summer program are awarded generous scholarship opportunities to colleges and universities in the state of Kentucky.
