The North Carolina Governor's School is the oldest statewide summer residential program for academically gifted high school students in the nation. The program offers a non-credit curriculum to 800 students from across the state.
Students are nominated for the Governor's School by teachers, counselors or principals to the local public school superintendent or private school headmaster. Each school system determines which of the school nominees will be sent for final selection at the state level.
The session begins June 12 and runs through July 23.
