The Young Scholars Academy is a selective partnership between the Northern Kentucky Cooperative for Educational Services, Northern Kentucky University, and partner school districts.
A limited number of scholars are selected to take a full-time college course load on NKU’s campus for their final two years of high school. YSA students are completely immersed in NKU's campus life while also working in small cohorts of like-minded peers.
Some scholars work toward specific degrees, while others explore interests. Every scholar has the opportunity to tailor the experience to their unique goals. By the end of the program, most students will have approximately 60 college credit hours. Some scholars may use those hours towards their bachelor's degree, while others earn the Associate of Arts in Integrative Studies degree through NKU!
