Craft Academy

Morehead State University is home to the Craft Academy for Excellence in Science and Mathematics, a dual-credit residential high school for academically exceptional Kentucky students.  The Craft Academy seeks to empower Kentucky’s high achieving youth to create, invent and lead in STEM career fields to improve the quality of lives in Eastern Kentucky and the Commonwealth.

The Craft Academy offers a residential college experience to promote innovation and creative enterprise and meets the unique educational needs of academically talented high school juniors and seniors in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  A college-level curriculum allows students to finish high school while also completing two years of university coursework.  At the end of two years, Craft Academy students will have earned a minimum of 60 college credit hours as well as their high school diploma. 

Students who wish to attend the Craft Academy must meet certain requirements and apply for the program. Students are selected based on ACT/SAT scores, academic grades from their first two years of high school, interest in advanced STEM careers, responses to application essay questions, an interview by the Academy selection committee and recommendations from teachers and others who can attest to the student’s preparedness for the program.
