Students who attend Governor's School are a product of teaching, support, and encouragement from parents, loved ones, and mentors. There is no greater gift than to see your child or family member take their first independent steps towards an exceptional future. When you contribute to the Governor's School Foundation, you give that same gift to another family who can’t afford the $600 tuition, and you also help ensure that the quality and reputation of the Governor’s School never fades.
