High Schoolers Invited to Learn More about N.C. Governor’s School

Oct. 15, 2021 – Rich in history, N.C. Governor’s School is the nation’s oldest statewide summer residential program for advanced students. Alumni say it's an experience they will never forget.  

Located on college campuses, the four-week program integrates academic disciplines, the arts and unique courses. Students gain valuable insight by attending classes and lectures where they will learn from their peers through discussions of the latest and most innovative topics and ideas. The curriculum does NOT include credits, tests or grades.  

“This summer experience is a unique opportunity for students to interact and collaborate with other academically motivated peers from across the state to delve into an area of interest, to discover new passions, and to be challenged to think creatively and critically about the world around them,” said Dibrelle Tourret, GCS director of AG. “It translates into lifelong friendships, a heightened intellectual curiosity and a new perspective on one’s place in the world.” 

For current 10th and 11th graders hoping to attend, Guilford Parent Academy is hosting virtual webinars to share more about the nomination and application process, deadlines for participation and next steps.  

The sessions will take place from 6 until 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 19 and on Thursday, Oct. 21.
