Students apply for admission to the Governor's School in the spring of their sophomore year. Applications are reviewed by selection committees in each school division. The selection committees consider standardized test scores, academic achievement, and demonstrated interest in science and mathematics when evaluating and ranking student applications. All students recommended for participation must meet the Requirements for Selection. The tuition for students accepted into the program is paid to the Governor's School by the student's school division. CVGS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability in its programs, activities or employment. CVGS juniors are required to meet specific academic standards in order to be admitted to the senior year program.
