Shenandoah Valley Governor’s School Holds Open House

Posted: Updated:

The Shenandoah Valley Governor's School held its biannual open house Monday night, giving students an opportunity to celebrate and showcase their work.

More than 200 juniors and seniors get special instruction in arts and sciences at the governor's school. Program Director Lee Ann Whitesell says the school provides college-level content.

"They're also getting real-world experience dealing with things like the electric vehicle team, robotics, computer networking and security, performance, visual art exhibits, trying to provide them with professional experiences in the areas that they are tending to pursue,” she said.

Whitesell says admission is based on grades, GPA, courses taken, and talents.
