Sophomores, juniors and seniors from fourteen participating school divisions in the Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck regions of Virginia attend the Governor’s School during the morning at one of three sites:
Bowling Green Campus: Caroline, King George, and King William Counties
RCC Glenns Campus: Gloucester, King & Queen, Mathews, Middlesex, and New Kent Counties
RCC Warsaw Campus: Essex, Lancaster, Northumberland, Richmond, and Westmoreland Counties; Town of Colonial Beach
The structure of district collaboration for CBGS means that the Director meets regularly with a point of contact for each school division, who serves on the Advisory Committee. This person is the district staff member with oversight of gifted services, be that an assistant superintendent, gifted coordinator, or similar. Your best communication within your district is to check in with your Advisory Board member.
CBGS is not the body that makes student selection decisions; that is done by the district team. The committee from each home school will meet to carefully review applications and recommend qualified applicants for admission to CBGS. But CBGS staff, along with gifted advisors, created the admissions guidelines, so we are happy to answer questions.
