For Morehead State students like Cody Madden, the Craft Academy is more than just a high school.

The Craft Academy, a dual-credit residential high school for academically gifted high school students, gives students like Madden a chance to take courses more challenging than an average high school.

“I was bored in high school,” said Madden, who can now pursue the type of education he wants while also graduating from high school.

Madden, who is a high school senior, learned about the Craft Academy from his high school counsellors and developed an interest in beginning college early after his older sister applied to Western Kentucky University’s Gatton program, which much like the Craft Academy.

The Craft Academy not only helps students transition to a more challenging type of education, but gives them more insight into new career choices.

Madden explained that if it wasn’t for the academy, he would have never known what kind of career he wanted to pursue in college.

“The classes helped me choose what I wanted, because it’s a more specified spectrum into the career fields than in high school,” said Madden.

While Craft academy students don’t declare majors, they are free to choose any class offered as long as they still take high school requirements, such as English 100 and 200.

Madden plans to return to Morehead State University for his first year of college, with a major in Chemistry.
