Summer Opportunities

SUMMER RESIDENTIAL GOVERNOR'S SCHOOLS (SRGS)

Summer Residential Governor’s Schools provide rising 11th and 12th grade students with intensive educational experiences.  Each Summer Residential Governor’s School focuses on one special area of interest. Students live on a college or university campus for up to four weeks each summer. During this time, students are involved in classroom and laboratory work, field studies, research, individual and group projects and performances, and seminars with noted scholars, visiting artists, and other professionals.   Students must apply or audition through a rigorous and intense application process.  Once a student attends one of these programs, they cannot attend another.

A student should be identified as gifted to apply for SRGS. Nominations may be made by teachers, school counselors, peers, or by the students themselves. A school or division selection committee chooses the nominees from each school or division and forwards the nominees to a state committee. Consideration is given to students’ academic records, test scores, extra-curricular activities, honors, and awards, creativity, original essays, and teacher recommendations.  Completed Applications are due to KGHS Counseling Department by 3:00 on January 6th.
