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.

 

How can I help my students apply for CBGS?
Students can pick up an application form from you, or download the application from our website. Please use our admissions checklist to make sure students are on track to meet the requirements for CBGS admissions. CBGS also asks guidance counselors to fill out a student profile for each individual application, including the student’s transcript and test scores. Please contact CBGS if you would like to set up an information session for your students to learn more about the school and admissions process.
How is transportation handled?
Buses run to and from the student’s home high school. In the mornings, buses will arrive in time for CBGS classes to begin at 8:00 A.M., and return after classes around 10:30 A.M. Check with your high school for more details regarding departure and arrival times.
What is the inclement weather policy?
Closing of CBGS is determined by site: Rappahannock Community College – Glenns, Rappahannock Community College – Warsaw, or the Caroline County School Board. If a student’s home school division is closed or delayed due to inclement weather, then attendance at CBGS will be excused. Students will be given the opportunity to complete missed work without penalty. Please see our inclement weather policy for more details and a list of TV and radio stations which broadcast school closing information.
