The Kentucky Education Experience (KEE) Program at Transylvania University

Quick message about the Kentucky Education Experience (KEE) Program, which is being held on Transylvania’s campus this summer, June 24-27. The targeted student population is rising high school seniors (although we will consider rising juniors); and there is no GPA or test score requirement.  Students will stay on Transy’s campus for 3 1/2 days and participate in a variety of workshops and sessions including:

  • A case study on the admissions process
  • Mock classroom experiences
  • Essay writing
  • How to look for scholarships
  • Mock scholarship interviews
  • College fair
  • Panel of current college students

There is also a talent show, time for the students to have fun and enjoy being on a college campus, time in our recreational facilities and opportunities to explore downtown Lexington.

Applications are due by June 1 and require a copy of the student’s high school transcripts and one (1) recommendation to accompany the application. The fee is $50, but this will be returned to the student upon completion of the program.  (Ask me about a fee waiver for the student if that is needed.) All meals and residence hall facilities will be provided by Transylvania University.

If you or your students have any questions about KEE, feel free to contact me at jjohnson@transy.edu or 859-233-8242. Please share the application with your rising seniors and their families.
