How to Apply


The Piedmont Summer Regional Governor's School is held the last two weeks of June. It is sponsored by the Virginia Department of Education and offers a variety of classes suitable for identified gifted students. The combination of small classes and an excellent teaching faculty provides students with an atmosphere that is ideal for learning.

Teaching strategies and techniques designed by these highly trained faculty members offer students the opportunity to participate in learning experiences that include investigative research, creative thinking, problem-solving and product-oriented activities.

The drama class presents a musical production. The performance is open to the public and is presented the last night of Governor's School at 7:30 pm at the Chatham High Auditorium in Chatham, Virginia.
