Two new governor’s schools will be available for high school students this summer — the Governor’s School for the Agricultural Sciences and the Governor’s School for Engineering and Technology.
The agricultural school will be a four-week residential program housed at Penn State University and application forms can be downloaded from www.agsci.psu.edu/governors-school. The engineering and technology school will be a two-week residential program that will be located at Lehigh University with application forms downloaded at www.lehigh.edu/pgset
The new schools will join the Governor’s School for the Sciences, which will be held at Carnegie Mellon University. Application forms can be accessed at www-pgss.mcs.cmu.edu.
The governor’s schools were closed in 2008 because of state budget problems. They reopened in 2013 with the Governor’s School for the Sciences at CMU, where 56 students from 48 high schools across the state participated.
Gov. Tom Corbett’s proposed 2014-15 budget sets aside $350,000 for the governor’s schools.
