Our mission is to give intellectually gifted high school students the opportunity to achieve their academic potential by providing an accelerated and enriched science and mathematics learning environment of exceptional quality, setting the pace for excellence in science and mathematics education in Southwest Virginia. We recognize that our students are not merely participants in the Governor's School program, they are the program itself. To remain vital, we will carefully plan our future curriculum and growth based on the ever-changing needs and interests of our students, the school systems supporting them, and the business community who will be their future employers.
