The South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities, a public, residential high school for artistically-talented students, is now accepting applications for the 2019-2020 school year and summer programs. All South Carolina residents in grades 6-11 are eligible to apply online at SCGSAH.org.
Located in downtown Greenville, the Governor’s School offers pre-professional training in creative writing, dance, drama, music, and visual arts. Students attend from all over the state to learn from established, practicing artists in an environment that provides the resources needed to hone their artistic abilities: including specialized arts studios, state-of-the-art performance halls, a world-class library, and dedicated rehearsal spaces.
In the tuition-free Residential High School program, students explore and refine their talents in a one-of-a-kind, master-apprentice community while receiving a high school education that has been nationally recognized by U.S. News and World Report, The Washington Post, and The Daily Beast.
The Governor’s School also offers three summer programs that provide younger students the opportunity to immerse themselves in their artistic passion while learning from practicing artists. These include Arts Odyssey, for rising 8th and 9th-grade students; Academy, for rising 10th-grade students; and Summer Dance, for rising 7th-12th grade students.
For more information about these programs and admissions details, visit SCGSAH.org. The Governor’s School will be hosting a joint information session with the Governor’s School for Science and Math, called Two Paths to the Top, in Columbia, Florence, Greenville, and North Charleston on October 16 at 6 p.m. All interested families are invited to attend.
