We are proud of this group and know they will represent us well at Arkansas Governor’s School.”
The four week summer program is a unique experience for rising Arkansas seniors. The students, selected by a committee named by the State Department of Education, live on the campus of Arkansas Tech University and attend classes in three areas of curriculum.
About two-thirds of class time is devoted to the student’s selected discipline, which includes choral music, drama, English/language arts, instrumental music, mathematics, natural science, social science, and visual art. Students also work in general conceptual development and personal and social development.
The 43rd annual Arkansas Governor’s School is scheduled for July 5-August 1, 2022.
