First Look

UPDATE: This year's First Look will take place virtually. Check back here for further updates. Date to be determined

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 dining hall. 

UPDATE: Shadowing is postponed for the Fall. Future dates to be announced

To learn more, contact Admissions at  


UPDATE: campus tours are not available at this time

Guided tours are offered Monday through Thursday on a limited basis during the school year by appointment.
