Governor's School 2012

Friday June 29 2012

 

About 155 of the state's top high school students will be studying website design, astronomy, and anatomy among other courses July 1-28 at the 2012 Governor's School for Math, Science, and Technology at Lynchburg College.

This is the 17th year Lynchburg College has hosted the program, which is directed by LC mathematics professor Danny Cline. The school provides intensive, hands-on learning experiences in classes offered by Lynchburg College faculty and a core of faculty recruited from high schools and colleges.

During their month-long stay, students live in College residence halls and enjoy the use of College facilities. They choose one of 10 classes of study. Check the complete course list.

Each year since 1973, Governor's Schools have offered opportunities for high school juniors and seniors from across the state to study together. Every public and private high school in Virginia is invited to submit nominations for students who have been identified as gifted in a particular area. Governor's schools are also offered at other locations in the humanities, visual and performing arts, and foreign languages.
