The Craft Academy for Excellence in Science and Mathematics is a dual-credit academy for academically exceptional Kentucky students.

Craft Academy provides students with a postsecondary residential experience to complete their junior and senior years of high school by enrolling in college courses. It is housed on the campus of Morehead State University, which is consistently ranked as one of the safest campuses in the Commonwealth.

The Academy opened in August 2015, with the goal of meeting the unique educational needs of academically gifted and talented high school juniors and seniors in the Commonwealth. A college-level curriculum allows students to finish high school while also completing up to two years of university coursework.

The academic rigor of the Craft Academy challenges students to excel at their highest level. Study is focused on a core of math and science courses and supplemented by electives in the arts and humanities.

Additionally, we offer unique, project-based STEM+X courses that enrich our students’ educational experiences and help them develop competencies in entrepreneurship and innovation, design and creativity, and civic and regional engagement.

The Craft Academy is made possible through the generosity of Joe and Kelly Craft, as well as appropriations from the Kentucky General Assembly.
