2020 High School Summer Residential Governor’s Schools
2020 High School Summer Residential Governor’s School
All Comprehensive and Specialty School high school students who meet the criteria are eligible. MLWGS and ARGS have their own slot allotments. Students are urged to contact their counselors for further information.
The Summer Residential Governor's Schools' applications are now open and online. Please distribute to your High School Department Chairs, Visual and Performing Arts Teachers and High School Counselors to complete the process of identifying candidates for the Summer Residential Governor's School (SRGS). The website includes the applications, weblinks, and forms that need to be forwarded to the Programs for Gifted & Talented office along with the student applications. Included are the SRGS guidelines and timelines for administrators and parents/students. This is an extremely competitive process and the slots are limited. However, I know we have talented students in our city that will rise to the occasion. Costs will be covered jointly by the VDOE and the school divisions. Talented and motivated 9th and 10th-grade students from all comprehensive and specialty schools are urged to apply.
