In addition to rigorous and relevant instruction in every school, Chesterfield County Public Schools offers high school students the opportunity to attend specialty centers and governor’s schools that target specific interests. Students apply during eighth grade, so middle school students and parents interested in learning more about these high school opportunities are invited to information fairs and open houses.
Information fairs offer general information and give families a chance to visit booths, ask questions and pick up information. All 12 specialty centers, both governor’s schools, the Chesterfield Technical Center, CCPSOnline and the Transportation Department of Chesterfield County Public Schools will participate in two information fairs:
Open houses at specialty centers and governor’s schools provide in-depth information about each site:
Applications for specialty centers are available at mychesterfieldschools.com. Applications for governor’s schools will be available starting Oct. 15 in middle school counseling offices. Dec. 2 is the deadline to apply to attend a specialty center or governor’s school for the 2014-2015 school year. Students will find out in March if they have been accepted.
