    NCDPI Announces New Host Campus for NC Governor’s School West 

    The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction and Superintendent Catherine Truitt are pleased to announce that beginning in the summer of 2024 the west campus of the North Carolina Governor’s School will be housed on the beautiful campus of Greensboro College. We are excited to embark on this partnership with the excellent team at Greensboro College under the leadership of President Lawrence Czarda. 

    The North Carolina Governor’s School is a four- week summer residential program for high achieving students from throughout the state. Gov. Terry Sanford founded the Governor’s School of North Carolina in 1963. The program, which does not involve credit, tests or grades, is the oldest statewide summer residential program for talented and motivated high school students in the nation.

    Founded in 1838 and located in downtown Greensboro, Greensboro College operates under the motto of Think critically. Act justly. Live faithfully. Greensboro College provides a liberal arts education grounded in the traditions of the United Methodist Church and fosters the intellectual, social, and spiritual development of all students while supporting their individual needs.The college enrolls approximately 1,000 students from 29 states and territories, the District of Columbia, and seven foreign countries in its undergraduate liberal arts program and six master's degree programs. In addition to rigorous academics and a well-supported Honors program, the school features a 19-sport NCAA Division III athletic program and dozens of service and recreational opportunities.

    Each North Carolina school system, charter school and private school is allotted a certain number of nominations based on its 10th- and 11th-grade populations. There are 10 specialization areas for nomination: English, Spanish, mathematics, natural sciences, social science, art, choral music, instrumental music, theater, and dance.

    NCDPI is currently reviewing more than 1,900 applications from high school students from across the state, with approximately 800 of the state’s most academically gifted and talented rising high school juniors and seniors to be selected for the 2024 session.

    Local school superintendents, along with directors of charter and private schools initially nominate students to attend Governor’s School. The program is open to rising seniors, with exceptions made to include rising juniors in selected performing arts areas.Faculty and staff of the Governor’s School include distinguished teachers and professionals from public and private schools, colleges and universities across the country. Others are independent artists and scholars. To further enrich the students’ experience, many faculty members are in residence on campus as well.

    Greensboro College will welcome the North Carolina Governor’s School to its lovely campus June 23 - July 20, 2024.
