Virginia Summer Residential Governor's School (SRGS)

There will be a MANDATORY Interest Meeting on Thursday, October 17, during Warhawk Time in the Cafeteria for Current 10th and 11th Grade Students who are interested in applying.

More specific deadlines for the whole process will be available by the time of this meeting, but please be aware that applications will be due in December before winter vacation.

View this PowerPoint presentation for important information including what Governor's School is, the submission process, and the online interest form.

UPDATE: FCPS has changed the Nov. 5 interest form due date to Nov. 6; therefore, all materials, including the online interest form, will be due on November 6.

Governor’s School is an exciting and enriching Virginia program designed for highly motivated students who are looking for a challenging summer experience.  Programs are offered in Visual and Performing Arts, Humanities, Math/Science/Technology, Agriculture, Medicine and Health Sciences, Engineering and Marine Science.

The selection process is extremely competitive.  Most students selected for the academic programs rank in the top 10% of their class and have scored in the 90th percentile on standardized measures of ability or achievement tests.  Students selected for the Visual and Performing Arts Programs have successfully completed a rigorous adjudication process. These residential programs run from late June to early August.  Only students who are available during that time and whose records match these criteria should apply.
