GSE - Governor School for Entrepreneurs
Kentucky counselors should note that students who complete the GSE program will now be eligible for the same scholarship opportunities as GSA and GSP students.
These awards begin Fall 2019 with the summer 2018 GSE graduates. Students that attended GSE in previous years are not eligible.
UK is a member institution of RaiseMe to help students identify scholarship opportunities and stay on track for future college funding during high school.
Application Information
Our letter of recommendation is still optional.
For most students, we encourage them not to submit a letter of recommendation. A recommendation letter would be helpful if the student has a learning disability, difficult family history, or other situation that would need explanation on their behalf to shed some light on the academic credentials.
We are in the process of onboarding with the Coalition Application, but for now we encourage students to use the Common Application or the UK application at applyuk.com.

Detentions that are not served with the 5 day allotment will results in an assigned day in ISAP. Thank you for your help.
 
Teacher/Faculty Spotlight
Adventure calls for Biology teacher, Ms. Kaylee Belanger!  Whether it's kayaking, traveling, or getting lost in a good book, Ms. Belanger lists these as some of her favorite past times.  As a 2013 graduate of Todd County Central High School, we are proud to have Ms. Belanger continue her years of Rebel Pride as well as family tradition, since her mom is also a teacher at TCCHS.  I'd guess this holiday season will be spent spoiling her fur baby, Charlee Rose and relaxing by a warm fire.
