Are you interested in Governor's School?? Or want to know more about what that looks like? Check out the information below. If this is something you are interested in, please let Mrs. Thomas or Mrs. Stallings know as soon as you can. Thanks so much!

The Governor’s School of North Carolina is the oldest statewide summer residential program for gifted and talented high school students in the nation. The program began in 1963 as the brainchild of several North Carolina educators and leaders with the goal of providing the gifted students of the state with an experience that would broaden their educational horizons by presenting them with cutting edge ideas and theories.

Each summer, selected students are invited to Governor’s School to help build a learning community during a four week session. Students are encouraged to explore and ask questions, with the purpose of learning for its own sake and discovering new possibilities that complement their high school instruction, without the regular pressures of tests, scores and grade point averages. The Governor’s School emphasizes collaborative efforts in all disciplines.

The ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) will be offered on the following dates during the 2022-2023 school year for 10th through 12th grade students:

January 26, 2023

March 28, 2023

Please see Mrs. Thomas to sign up for one of these sessions.

Reasons to take the ASVAB:

  1. It is FREE!
  2. You need it for military entrance (although you do not have to enter the military if you take the test)
  3. It is a career assessment tool which helps identify which careers are best for you
  4. After taking the test, you will have access to a variety of excellent career and college search tools that are not available to other people
