Arlington Students Selected to Attend Summer Residential Governor’s School

Twenty-seven APS students were invited to attend the Summer Residential Governor’s School for Academics, Mentorship, Visual and Performing Arts and World Language Academies.

Summer Residential Governor’s Schools provide gifted high school juniors and seniors in Virginia with intensive educational experiences in one special area of interest in visual and performing arts; humanities; mathematics, science, and technology; or through mentorships in marine science, medicine and health sciences, or engineering. Summer Residential World Language Academies include full-immersion academies in French, German and Spanish; a partial-immersion Japanese Academy; and a Latin Academy.

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. In the three mentorships, students are selected to work side-by-side with research scientists, physicians, and a variety of other professionals. Congratulations to the following students who are invited to attend this summer:
