Scholars' Academy Introduces High School Seniors to
The Wesleyan Way
Thirty-seven rising high school seniors from four states (Ky., Ill., Tenn., Nev.) and 10 Kentucky counties experienced college life and The Wesleyan Way in the fast-paced immersion program from June 24-30. Attendees lived in dorms, attended classes, explored downtown Owensboro and participated in service learning activities at Girls Inc., Boulware Mission and Habitat for Humanity. Classes explored leadership traits, creativity, group dynamics, values and ethics, and accountability. The students were honored at a closing ceremony in Rogers Hall. The inaugural Scholars' Academy was held in June 2016. Over 50 percent of the 2016 and 2017 classes enrolled at Wesleyan.
Four rising sophomores who are 2016 Scholars' Academy graduates were residential counselors this year. Read their thoughts on Scholars' Academy here.
