Acceptance Notification 


The Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School provides an educational option for high-ability and gifted students interested in math, science, and technology.  Sophomores, juniors, and seniors from fourteen participating school divisions in the Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck regions in Virginia attend the Governor’s School during the morning at one of three sites: RCC-Glenns Campus, RCC-Warsaw Campus, or Bowling Green in Caroline County.   King George County Students attend the Bowling Green site.   Students will ride a bus to the site during blocks one and two of their schedule.   Students will attend classes at King George High School during blocks three and four.


CBGS is a demanding program that supplements your home high school, by offering mathematics and science classes, along with a rich outdoor educational component. You need not think you will major in math or science in college to come to CBGS, but it is important to realize you will be deeply immersed in these subjects while you are here. CBGS offers all classes as Dual Enrollment with RCC, thus you must prepare to work at the college level, at all times.
