KCSD's Young Scholars Academy celebrates inaugural class

YSA Celebration

The Young Scholars Academy celebrated their inaugural graduating class on Monday, May 9.  This unique partnership between KCSD and Northern Kentucky University allows for scholars to join a two-year cohort in their junior year of high school while being fully immersed on NKU’s campus taking a full-time college course load. 

YSA’s first graduating class boasts 71 scholars from Kenton County High Schools with 35 earning Associate of the Arts degrees in Integrative Studies. Half of this graduating class will be continuing their coursework at NKU after high school graduation, and the other half will be continuing their studies throughout the Commonwealth and nation, including studying in Ohio, Florida, New York, Maryland, Illinois, and Michigan.
