downloadSummer Residential Governor’s Schools provide gifted high school juniors and seniors with intensive educational experiences in visual and performing arts; humanities; mathematics, science, and technology; or through mentorships in marine science, medicine and health sciences, or engineering.

Each Summer Residential Governor’s School focuses on one special area of interest. Students live on a college or university campus 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 noted scholars, visiting artists, and other professionals.

APPLICATIONS are typically due in October preceding the summer of the program.  For more information, please refer to  the  link: http://www.doe.virginia.gov/instruction/governors_school_programs/summer_residential/index.shtml
