NC Governor's School Nominations
"The North Carolina Governor's School is a 5½-week summer residential program for gifted and talented high school students, integrating academic disciplines, the arts, and unique courses on each of two campuses. The curriculum focuses on the exploration of the most recent ideas and concepts in each discipline, and does not involve credit, tests, or grades."
Core academic areas are only open to current juniors, and arts areas are open to current sophomores and juniors. If this is something you might be interested in, please see Ms. Blackmon. She will provide you with the nomination packet and necessary paperwork.
Freshmen and sophomores, even though you are unable to apply this year for academic subject areas, please explore this opportunity for the future.
This is a great opportunity to enrich your learning, simply for the sake of learning. It is also a wonderful experience in preparation for college and a great resume builder.
