School Leadership

The South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities is governed by a Board of Directors that is appointed by the Governor. They meet four times annually, along with the school's Board of Advisors for Leadership, Finance & Education and serve as the policy-making entity for the school. The school's Administrative Team works with the board to enact policy and run the day-to-day operations.
