The South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities is home to a growing body of alumni from all walks of life in every corner of the state. The first graduates to attend the school were the 1981 summer students. The Summer Honors Program students between 1981 and 2000 are our Founding Alumni. Many of them say that the summer they spent at the Governor's School was life-changing. Just as we helped to shape their lives, so have they shaped ours by their many contributions to our state, nation and world at large.
Our first residential high school class graduated in 2001 and with each succeeding class comprise our Residential High School Alumni. Even though many of these individuals are still earning advanced degrees and/or just starting their careers, they have been recognized for their advanced artistry, focus, discipline and high level of critical thinking. Our Residential High School Alumni now join our Founding Alumni in acceptances to top colleges, universities, conservatories and ballet companies, and are seeking a wide range of careers.
