Summer Residential Governor’s Schools provide gifted high school juniors and seniors with intensive educational experiences in foreign language, 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. In the three mentorships, students are selected to work side-by-side with research scientists, physicians, and a variety of other professionals. A director and a student-life staff provide supervision of students 24 hours a day, throughout the program. For more information, please contact Dr. Maria Lawson-Davenport, Supervisor of Advanced Instruction K-12 at firstname.lastname@example.org or 757-925-6760.
