SCGSAH accepts students for 2013/14 High School

April 22, 2013 - The South Carolina Governorís School for the Arts and Humanities (SCGSAH) accepts students for the 2013/14 high school program.

This public residential high school serves students state-wide and is located in downtown Greenville. The 2013/14 High School program offers rigorous academics and pre-professional training in one of five arts areas: Creative Writing, Dance, Drama, Music or Visual Arts. Summer Programs are offered in each of the art areas. Nearly 1000 students applied to Governor's Schoolís programs this audition season.

ďEducation here takes on a different meaning, where academics are just as challenging as the art in which students study,Ē says Dr. Bruce Halverson, President of SCGSAH. ďStudents have an opportunity to learn with the best faculty and take the next steps in their artistic and/or academic careers.Ē

Academic instructors all have attained Masters and/or Doctorate degrees. Artistic faculty members are active in their disciplines led by a collection of distinguished Department Chairs: award-winning, published author Scott Gould, world-renowned dancer and choreographer Josťe Garant, nationally accomplished actor/director Daniel Murray, experienced conductor/musician Dr. David Hamilton, and successful artist/sculptor Joe Thompson.

Students with a passion for art become better artists and students in this place. This public residential high school has the third highest SAT scores in South Carolina. They are ranked in the top 1% in academics for public schools, according to Newsweek. The 2012 graduating class accumulated approximately $25M in scholarship offers.
