Governor's School for Entrepreneurs!

Congratulations to the following Ryle students for being recently selected to the Governor's School for Entrepreneurs!

Tanner Schmidt
Will Richards
Zach St. Hilaire 
Ken Ryumae


Selected students will attend a 3-week program on the campus of a Kentucky college or university.  Here are a few details about the program, check out the following link for more - kentuckygse.com.


Governor's School for Entrepreneurs

What We Are
GSE is a high school accelerator-styled program for motivated, free-thinking teens interested in sharing and building ideas.

Why We Exist

We exist to enable Kentucky high school teens to think like an entrepreneur. We do this by exposing them to the mindset, culture, and skills necessary to start a company.

Our Vision
GSE’s leadership recognized that teens in Kentucky were not being given dynamic opportunities to learn about entrepreneurship and put their ideas into action. For many communities in Kentucky, efforts focused on human capital -- meaning entrepreneurship education initiatives aimed at changing the mindset and capacity of young people -- may be the best hope of changing outcomes and improving living standards.

GSE is a key program of KEENStart.

From cities and suburbs from farms and coal fields, from every corner of the Commonwealth, Kentucky’s most talented, creative high school students gather for three weeks each summer to learn and grow together at the Governor’s School for the Arts (GSA). Rising juniors and seniors in high school are offered in-depth instruction in one of nine artistic disciplines: architecture, creative writing, dance, drama, instrumental music, musical theatre, new media, visual art or vocal music. Over 1,400 students audition for the program each year at four sites across Kentucky. 256 students are selected for GSA, an honor which includes: full tuition, room and board to attend the school; the opportunity to learn in a supportive community of distinguished master-teachers; the chance to audition for scholarships before the nation’s top colleges and universities; the excitement of performing at the Student Performance Festival at the conclusion of the program; and serious fun!

During their three week stay on the beautiful campus of Centre College in Danville, the student artists are immersed in a rigorous schedule of daily seminars, master-classes, lectures, hands-on workshops and field trips. While each student specializes in one art form, all students participate in structured, interdisciplinary arts experiences designed to familiarize them with the joys and challenges of disciplines other than their own.
