Starting in 2019, Transy will guarantee admitted graduates from Bryan Station High School’s Academy of Information Technology (AIT) a minimum of $18,000 in scholarships.

Transy has been developing this scholarship program with Bryan Station High School for about three years now. “There are similar agreements between Transy and other high schools in the Lexington area such as Henry Clay, Tates Creek, and Lexington Catholic,” said President Seamus Carey.

“We want qualified students who, in the past, might not have considered Transy for college to take a close look at us.”

AIT is a top school in the Lexington area and the longest-established Academy within Bryan Station. Its main mission is to prepare and educate students in computer programming, video and cinematography, and graphic design.

The average financial aid package Transy offers students is around $27,000 per year. This average amount of financial aid, along with the scholarship program offered at AIT, may appeal to a wider selection of students who may have considered Transy, but could not afford the cost.

“We are excited to welcome a diverse pool of qualified students to apply to Transy,” Carey said.
