It 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 program, which is open to rising seniors only, with exceptions made for rising juniors in selected performing/visual arts areas, is located on two campuses of up to 335 students each: Governor’s School West at High Point University and Governor’s School East at Meredith College.
Ms. Gery will attend Governor’s School East in the area of English. Ms. Evans will attend Governor’s School West in the area of Visual Arts. Mr. Price will attend Governor’s School West in the area of Mathematics.
The program is administered by the Public Schools of North Carolina, the State Board of Education, and the Department of Public Instruction through the Exceptional Children Division. The 2021 session will be held in-person from June 20 through July 24.
