Conducted on three Kentucky college campuses, GSP encourages academic and personal growth by means of a strong liberal arts program. Rising high school juniors from Kentucky choose one major course from roughly two dozen subjects. Instruction follows a nontraditional, interdisciplinary approach. Guest speakers, student productions, publications, experiments and field trips enhance the curriculum. Faculty come from Kentucky colleges, universities and high schools. Interested pupils must be nominated by their schools.
