DSLCC partners with local school divisions and the Virginia Department of Education to operate the Governor’s School. Its purpose is to provide challenging educational experiences for students with advanced interests and abilities in mathematics, science, and technology. High school students take courses on campus at DSLCC, earn approximately forty college credits during their junior and senior years at JRGS, and gain a prestigious credential, which provides an advantage in the very competitive college and scholarship application/selection processes. JRGS students earn a career studies certificate in science and mathematics from DSLCC and, with just thirty additional college credits, students may earn an Associate’s Degree from DSLCC.
