GOVERNOR'S SCHOOLS (SRGS)
ACADEMICS AND MENTORSHIPS INFORMATION
The Summer Residential
Governor's Schools (SRGS) (Academic and Mentorships) are month-long residential
programs for tenth and eleventh grade students in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
The Summer Residential Governor's Schools are housed on various campuses
throughout the Commonwealth and are funded by the Commonwealth of Virginia and
local school divisions. Tuition for the programs is paid by the county, though
students may be assessed a nominal activities fee.
The SRGS Academic programs provide intellectually challenging and
enriching experiences within a community of mutual support, respect, and
dedication for a limited number of academically/intellectually gifted high
school students. Each college-based program provides a curriculum that
integrates subject matter from various disciplines around its overall program
theme. Each mentorship program provides challenging work experiences relevant
to the mentorship site.
