First Look

First Saturday in November

First Look is the best opportunity for prospective parents and students who have not yet had a chance to visit our beautiful campus in downtown Greenville to tour our facilities and learn about everything the Governor's School has to offer South Carolina's young artists.

At this free event, guests can attend information sessions and demonstrations by our five art area—Creative Writing, Dance, Drama, Music, and Visual Arts.

Typical First Look schedule:  First Look Program


Student Shadowing

Tenth-grade students interested in the residential high school program can experience “a day in the life” of a Govie by shadowing a current student—
attending academic and art classes, meeting faculty and peers, and eating lunch in the cafeteria. 

Music students - shadowing opportunities are available throughout the school year. Contact Mechelle Luster at

Dance, Drama, Creative Writing, Visual Arts students - shadowing occurs during the month of October. 


Guided tours are offered Monday through Thursday during the school year by appointment. Reservations are required at least one week in advance.
