INSIGHT, a postsecondary preparation program for high school students who are blind or visually impaired, will be held on the Morehead State University campus June 9-16.

In its 12th year, the program is a collaboration between MSU, Kentucky Office for the Blind, Kentucky School for the Blind, Big East Educational Cooperative, and KSB Charitable Foundation.

The program is offered to students who have completed the 10th, 11th or 12th grade and is designed to give them a real world college experience, including living in a residence hall, attending academic classes and practicing orientation and mobility skills in a campus environment.

Attendees also participate in organized recreational and social activities on campus and in the community.

Although a number of INSIGHT alums have gone on to enroll at MSU, what is learned through the program are highly transferrable college skills that will support success at any postsecondary institution.
