Faithways Academy, at Georgetown College, is aimed to help high school students mature as Christian leaders in order to better serve the church and the world. To accomplish this goal, Faithways Academy is a summer program at Georgetown College that is designed to offer students a pre-college experience that enables them to reflect deeply on their faith in an academic setting and to explore their faith in the world.
Each session of the program accepts 46 applicants from current high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors who are already active and involved in their local churches in Kentucky and nearby regions.
Georgetown College is also pleased to recognize the value of participation in Faithways Academy with a $10,000 scholarship! Any student who completes the Faithways Academy is automatically eligible to receive a $10,000 scholarship to Georgetown College, $2,500 per year for four years.

Faithways, why is it important to Churches?
During their days at Faithways Academy students will be challenged to go deeper in their faith. They will explore questions and ideas in new and interesting ways. When they return home from their time with us they will be better equipped as leaders and resources for their church and youth ministries. We want to help students deepen their faith, equip them to be leaders in their local church, and prepare them to contribute.
Faithways, Why is it important to students?
The days spent at Faithways Academy are aimed at helping students dive deeper in their faith, and explore the questions that often are buried deep in our hearts and soul. During their time at the Academy these questions will be discussed, and students will get the opportunity to explore their deeper thoughts that are often buried from the crazy busy world we live in. Students will leave the Academy as better leaders, and more knowledgeable about their faith.
