Applications Welcome for Summer Residential Governor’s School
October 17, 2018
Applications are now available for the Summer Residential Governor’s School. Students must be in either 10th or 11th grade, and be gifted or an advanced student in one of the following areas: Foreign Language, Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Humanities, Math, Science, Technology, Agriculture, Medicine, Space or Marine Science.
Each summer, Residential Governor’s School focuses on one special area of interest. Students live on a college or university campus (such as Virginia Tech or Old Dominion) for up to four weeks each summer.
During this time, students are involved in classroom and laboratory work, field studies, research, individual and group projects and performances, and seminars with scholars, visiting artists, and other professionals. In the three mentor-ship opportunities, students are selected to work side-by-side with research scientists, physicians, and a variety of other professionals.
A director and student-life staff provide supervision of students 24 hours a day throughout the program. Students who are selected are able to attend the month-long schools free of charge.
The deadlines for applications are as follows:
Visual and Performing Arts- November 16
Foreign Language Academies- December 14
Academic- February 1
