Campbellsville High School sophomore Samuel Kessler will attend Gatton Academy for his last two years of high school.
Kessler is one of 100 sophomores in Kentucky chosen to attend Western Kentucky University's Gatton Academy of Mathematics of Science.
He is the only student in Taylor County chosen.
"Our admissions process was as competitive this year as any other," Dr. Lynette Breedlove, Gatton Academy director, said.
"We are very excited to take our first class of 100 students as The Gatton Academy's expansion begins. The Class of 2018 is a remarkable group of students from across the Commonwealth. The depth of the applicant pool this year supports the legislature's decision to expand The Academy to serve more of Kentucky's exceptional students."
Applicants were evaluated based on ACT/SAT scores, high school grades, awards, extracurricular activities, responses to essay and short answer questions and letters of recommendation.
Kessler will live on the WKU campus while completing his last two years of high school. He will graduate from Gatton Academy with at least 60 college hours completed.
At CHS, Kessler is a member of the academic and tennis teams. He is the son of Dr. Richie and Sonya Kessler. Mrs. Kessler is a computer science teacher at CHS. He has also been chosen to attend the Rogers Scholars program this summer.
