    Governor's School...


    is the oldest statewide summer residential program for academically, intellectually, and artistically gifted students in the nation.  The students spend six weeks in this residential program, which is held on two campuses:  GS West at Salem College in Winston Salem and GS East at Meredith College in Raleigh.  Each year we are given a limited number of nominations for the academics and arts areas.  Competition is extremely rigorous for this high honor and terrific opportunity.  

    All interested students must attend one of the Governor's School Information Sessions on Monday, September 26th or Wednesday, September 28th.  Both meetings will be at 10:30 in the Career Center.

  • We need YOUR Expertise!

    School-to-Career of Wake County brings career and workplace information into the classroom.  The initiative restructures education so students will improve their academic performance and see a purpose to their studies.  In order to provide these experiances for our students, we need professionals to share information with them.  You can provide valuable information by voluteering to be a classroom speaker, talking with students during SMART lunch, presenting career information at our Career Fair, hosting a class trip at your workplace, hosting an individual student job shadow or internship, and providing answers to real world questions for classes.  
    This is an oppurtunity for you, as a businessperson and parent, to impact the lives of our students at CHS.  
    If you are interested in voluteering, please visit our website by clicking HERE or for more information please email Wendy Gressett, Career Development Coordinator, at
