The Commonwealth Governor's School LogoBased on a school-within-a-school model, the half-day program at The Commonwealth Governor’s School utilizes real-time interactive audio/visual technology, field trips, and team teaching to create a regional community of learners.

Students from Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania and Stafford school divisions are offered a rigorous program of study while interacting with other talented students in the region.

Students from participating high schools travel to one of the six Commonwealth Governor’s School sites: Colonial Forge High School, North Stafford High School, Stafford High School, Spotsylvania High School,  Riverbend High School, and King George High School.

The Commonwealth Governor’s School curriculum is designed to challenge students in four major academic content areas, through problem-based instruction appropriate for gifted and highly motivated learners and to focus on the community issues of environment, development, and service.
