The South Carolina Governor’s School for Science & Mathematics (GSSM) is hosting a Preview Day for prospective students and their families on Monday, January 16, 2017, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on the GSSM campus at 401 Railroad Avenue, Hartsville, SC 29550. This open house event will provide intending students and parents with a chance to meet faculty, staff and current students, as well as take part in a series of informational panels and participate in student guided campus tours.
One of only 12 of its kind in the nation, GSSM is a two-year, public, residential high school for juniors and seniors, specializing in the advanced study of science, technology, engineering, entrepreneurship and math.
Beyond its distinctive curriculum, GSSM offers unique learning opportunities including the nationally recognized Summer Program for Research Interns (SPRI), the Research Experience Scholars Program (RESP) and January Interim. These innovative programs provide students with mentored, graduate-level internships, international travel experiences and options to explore non-traditional courses. The School also educates the next generation of entrepreneurs and business leaders through the BlueCross BlueShield Economics & Finance Institute and the next generation of engineers through the Duke Energy Engineering & Innovation Institute.
To attend a Preview Day, students should register online. Due to limited space, students must meet all GSSM admissions requirements.
GSSM applicants should be South Carolina residents and have at least 10.5 high school credits prior to the end of the 2016-2017 school year, including Geometry, Algebra I and II, English I and II, a social studies course and a lab science course
