Governor's School of North Carolina

The Governor's School of North Carolina is a summer program for gifted and talented high school students. This residential program for rising seniors (and rising juniors if they are selected for performing/visual arts) is located at Salem College in Winston-Salem or Meredith College in Raleigh. Although, this is a program administered by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, it may be worthwhile program for particularly mature students.

Areas of academic interest include English, Spanish, French, Mathematics, Natural Science, Social Science, Art, Choral Music, Instrumental Music, Dance and Theater. The emphasis in all disciplines will be in contemporary texts, compositions, artistic expressions, issues and ideas and theories that flow from them. However, it is especially important to consider your child's ability to incorporate a Biblical Worldview filter as they approach their preferred discipline.

The majority of the cost are funded by the state of North Carolina. Deadline for nomination is November 15, 2016. The program will run from June 18, 2017 through July 26, 2017. Details can be found at the link below.
