University of Delaware Governor’s School for Excellence

The Delaware Governor's School for Excellence is a one-week summer residential program that brings together academically and artistically talented Delaware high school students who have completed their sophomore year. Students live in residence halls on the Newark campus and attend either the academic program--consisting of discussions, lectures, debates, and films revolving around a specific theme--or the visual and performing arts program, which provides tutorial instruction with a noted artist and culminates in a performance or public display of the students' work. Students are nominated to participate in Governor's School through their schools, in a competitive application process.
