CHS Students Accepted To AR Governor's School
Apr 29, 2021
The Cabot School District is proud to recognize our 16 students who were accepted into the 2021 Arkansas Governor’s School program.
The Arkansas Governor’s School is a four-week summer residential program held July 5th - August 1st (in person this year) at Arkansas Tech University for gifted and talented students who are upcoming high school seniors and residents of the state of Arkansas.
The program is funded by the Arkansas State Legislature as a portion of the biennial appropriation for Gifted and Talented Programs through the State Department of Education. State funds provide tuition, room, board, and instructional materials for each student who attends the four-week program on the site of a residential college campus, leased by the State.
The Arkansas Governor’s School is a non-credit program that seeks to create a unique experience for a select group of Arkansas’ best students—the potential leaders of the 21st century.
Students are selected on the basis of their special aptitudes in one of eight fields: Choral Music, Drama, English/Language Arts, Instrumental Music, Mathematics, Natural Science, Social Science, or Visual Arts. All students also take classes in General Conceptual Development (Area II) and in Personal and Social Development (Area III).
