Hanover County Public Schools is now accepting applications for the third annual Hanover Regional Governor’s School for Career and Technical Advancement (HRGS-CTA) at the University of Richmond this summer from July 8-21, 2018. Applications are available from your CTE teacher and are due to a CTE teacher by Monday, March 5, 2018.

HRGS-CTA is a regional two-week summer residential program designed for gifted Career and Technical Education (CTE) students who have demonstrated accomplishment, aptitude, and interest in CTE curricula and careers. Skills will be cultivated and honed through group problem solving activities, guest speakers from the business and academic communities, visits to regional businesses leaders, and mentorship experiences designed to highlight workplace readiness. Participants will enjoy a fast-paced, exciting and relevant hands-on experience with students and staff who share their passion for career and technical education.

Applicants must be rising juniors who are enrolled in at least one CTE course with a grade of “B” or better and expect to continue in the CTE program during their final two years of high school; or rising seniors who have completed at least one credit in a CTE course and/or are currently enrolled in a CTE course with a grade of “B” or better and expect to continue in the CTE program during their final year of high school.

HCPS, along with the other regional participating school divisions, will send their top 4 candidates to the HRGS-CTA Selection Committee. 40 total students will be selected for the academy. Applicants will be notified of selections in early April.

Remember, applications are due to your student’s CTE teacher by March 5, 2018.
