Governor's School of Excellence

Former Governor’s School Programs Continue with Success

The University of Pittsburgh Health Career Scholars Academy (UPHCSA), the Iacocca Global Entrepreneurship Intensive at Lehigh University, and the Pennsylvania School for Excellence in Agricultural Sciences at Penn State are accepting applications for the 2018 summer programs. Current high school sophomores and juniors are encouraged to apply.  Application due date is February 15, 2018 but all are encouraged to apply early.

These programs continue to successfully meet the need for high-achieving students in the state of Pennsylvania, despite the state’s budget cuts.   The enrichment programs are second to none in providing the experience and skill set needed for students who will be applying to college and are looking for the edge towards their future careers. The programs have maintained the same curriculum and selectivity as the former Governor’s Schools.
