Congratulations to 13 BCS high school scholars who have been accepted to the prestigious Governor's School of North Carolina.

Governor’s School is a five-and-one-half-week summer course of study at the cutting edge of multiple disciplines. Offered to academically gifted rising seniors (and some rising juniors), the highly selective and rigorous residential program integrates academics, the arts, and unique courses on each of two campuses.

“Governor’s school applicants are always highly motivated students,” said BCS Academically and Intellectually Gifted Lead Facilitator Christine T. Cutshall. “They’re looking for opportunities to better understand how the world works. They’re eager to learn and grow. That’s part of what makes Governor’s School so exciting. When you get students like this together, they build on each other’s momentum.”

Governor's School is collaborating with medical health professionals and is still working to make the decision about in-person or online service this summer.
