Summer is Looking Better and Better!
WV Governor's Schools Can Change Your Life.
The State of West Virginia is proud to offer The Governor's Honors Schools, residential summer sessions for academically and/or artistically talented students from across West Virginia. Consisting of three programs that take place every summer on the campuses of various state colleges and institutions of learning, the programs are based on the premise that West Virginia's youth must be provided with special opportunities for learning and personal development in order for them to realize their full potential.
Students may attend the Governor's School for Math and Science following either the seventh or eighth grade; they apply for the Governor's School for the Arts during their sophomore year; and they apply during their junior year for the Governor's Honors Academy.
School-specific information can be found on the individual school tabs, although some important dates are published on this page.
All Governor's Schools are provided at no cost to the students or their parents.
