APS News Release

23 Arlington Students Selected to Attend Summer Residential Governor’s School

Governor Ralph Northam announced that 23 Arlington students were selected to attend the Summer Residential Governor’s School. Summer Residential Governor’s Schools provide gifted high school juniors and seniors with intensive educational experiences in visual and performing arts; humanities; mathematics, science, and technology; or through mentorships in marine science, medicine and health sciences, or engineering. In addition, the foreign language academies include full-immersion academies in French, German and Spanish; a partial-immersion Japanese Academy; and a Latin Academy.

Because of the limited number of residential placements available, this is a highly competitive process and not all students who are nominated by their schools can be accepted for participation.

This summer, 23 APS students were accepted into the following programs:
