Prospective Students – Learn More about SVGS!

hum iShenandoah Valley Governor’s School, 49 Hornet Road, Fishersville, will conduct an information session for prospective students at 6:30 p.m. on November 21, 2016, at the school.  This will provide 8th, 9th, and 10th grade-students and their parents an opportunity to visit SVGS and learn more about our program, admission requirements, and the admissions process.

Applications  will be available on the website on December 1.  All applications for 2017-18 are due February 20, 2017.
