First Look

Saturday, November 2

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 areas — Creative Writing, Dance, Drama, Music, and Visual Arts.

Student Shadowing

Those eligible to apply for 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. 

October is Shadowing Month. To learn more, contact Admissions at Music students have shadowing opportunities from October through March. 


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