KY FAME Program Open House




The KY FAME program provides some great opportunities to interested students.

This program can students provide students with an opportunity to have a well-paying job right out of high school with the opportunity to go to college (for free!) while they work.

For the NKY FAME Advanced Manufacturing Technician (AMT) program, all employers pay for the schooling at Gateway Community & Technical School. Some of the employers pay the student while in school and some of the employers do not pay them while in school. Therefore, AMT’s can be making a full time or a part time wage depending on the employer.

We are seeing many students start their college careers at Gateway because it is cheaper and credits earned will transfer to any other public college or university in Kentucky.

Local companies are not only trying to find skilled employees they are also working to identify students that have leadership capabilities for management positions.  Many companies have programs where they will pay for a student to earn their bachelor's degree if they work a specified number of years with them.

Lots of opportunities are out there!

See the open house information below.

Construction Update - Twas the Night Before Christmas Eve ..

Friday, December 23rd - Twas the Night Before Christmas Eve and all through the school,
staff and construction workers were stirring everywhere!

While students are away, our school is in the middle of a flurry of activity on mid-year cleaning and maintenance and also on the construction project.  Here is a quick update with some pictures of the progress.




Working now to get the lower commons expansion completely under roof.  Here you see the radius wall where glass will be installed and give it the same visual of bronze mirrored glass as the previous commons.  The left side of the 2nd picture shows the vestibule that will connect the commons addition to the academic wing, allow foot traffic to move more smoothly through the school.



The masonry crew is working to complete the brick facing on the new wall in the commons addition.



The old floor in the band room, including the temporary tiling that covered the new plumbing installation, is being replaced with new tile.  The old exit doors on the left have been covered and the new doors to the outside on the left are nearly complete.


The inside of the new physical education room is nearly complete - just some finishing details to go.



Above is the inside view of the vestibule connecting the commons and academic wing along with an inside view of the commons addition.



Along with the construction, routine maintenance and cleaning is happening throughout the building - cleaning and buffing the gym floor, a new sound system will be installed as well, and cleaning the floors in the classrooms.

Enjoy your holiday break and we will see you on January 5th!
