Governor's School

October 03, 2018

Virginia Summer Residential Governor’s Schools are challenging and enriching programs designed for highly motivated students who are looking for a challenging summer experience. Programs are FREE and are offered in Visual and Performing Arts, Humanities, Math/Science/Tech, Agriculture, Life Science/Medicine, and mentorships in Engineering and Life Sciences. CURRENT 10TH AND 11TH graders may apply.

The selection process is extremely competitive.  Most students selected rank in the top 10% of their class and have scored in the 90th percentile on standardized measures of ability or achievement tests.  These residential programs run from late June to late July.  Only students who are available during that time frame and whose records match these criteria should apply.

Please note – students who show potential to attend World Language Governor’s Schools will be contacted directly by teachers. Testing will begin in January.

If you are interested in applying to Governor’s School, please attend our interest and informational meeting at 3:05pm on Monday, October 15th in the Library.

If you have any questions, see Ms. No (2nd Floor Subschool, jno@fcps.edu) or Ms. Schneider (3rd Floor Subschool, nwschneider@fcps.edu)
