Governor's Summer Residential Program

The 2021 Governor’s Summer Residential Program will include seven Summer Residential Governor’s  Schools (SRGS) and five Governor’s World Language Academies (GWLA). The SRGS offer gifted high  school students opportunities for intensive study in academics, mentorships, and visual and performing  arts. The GWLA offer full-immersion academies for French, German, and Spanish; a partial-immersion  academy for Japanese; and a Latin Academy. The SRGS and GWLA are available to students enrolled in  public and accredited private schools as well as home-schooled students.  

Student Applications 

Applications, information, and administrative guides for the 2021 SRGS and GWLA are  available electronically through the Virginia Department of Education’s website. Please find SRGS information here, and GWLA information can be found here. 


Students may attend only one Governor’s Summer Residential Program during their high school  career. Public high school students may apply through their schools. Home-schooled students  may apply by submitting a completed application to the principal of the public high school they  are zoned to attend. The student’s application then becomes part of that school’s application  process. Private school students may apply through their schools. Virginia residents who attend  private schools outside the Commonwealth of Virginia should contact the appropriate specialist  below. For eligibility and nomination requirements specific to each program, as well as detailed  application submission procedures, please refer to the administrative guides available from the  respective websites mentioned above.
