Governor’s School for 10th and 11th Graders: The Tennessee Governor’s Schools provide 11 challenging and high-intensity summer programs for rising 11th and 12th grade students.

The programs are academically demanding and require students who are high achievers. Eligible students typically rank in the top of their high school class in academic performance/capability or should be highly talented in the arts.

All students attending Governor’s Schools will receive a scholarship which covers the cost of tuition, dorms, and meals; however, some Governor’s Schools have additional student activity fees to defray costs of activities or other non-academic expenses, which are not covered by the scholarship. Some Governor Schools also offer students the opportunity to earn college credit at no charge. The 11 Tennessee Governor’s Schools are:

• Agriculture Sciences at University of Tennessee Martin
