Thirteen accomplished Buncombe County Schools students have been accepted to the prestigious Governor's School of North Carolina for 2018, which is an annual academic residential program for high-achieving high school students. Participants are selected by the program's Board of Governors, based on nominations by their school systems for academic or performing/visual arts aptitude.


"The Governor's School of North Carolina is a five and one-half week summer residential program for intellectually gifted high school students, integrating academic disciplines, the arts, and unique courses," states the official Governor's School of North Carolina website. "The curriculum focuses on the exploration of the most recent ideas and concepts in each discipline, and does not involve credits, tests, or grades... The program is administered by the Public Schools of North Carolina, the State Board of Education, and the Department of Public Instruction through the Exceptional Children Division. A Board of Governors, appointed by the State Board of Education, acts as an advisory body.“


These students have been selected for the 2018 session of the North Carolina Governor's School. Their names are followed by the school attended, nomination area, and grade level.
