OUTCOMES: Shaping citizen leaders since 1763
The value of a Governor's education is clear.
Accountability, responsibility, and cooperation form an unwritten curriculum and guiding purpose at Governor's that has produced generations of leaders. Here you will find the courage to take risks, the wisdom to learn from your mistakes, and the confidence to put the needs of the wider world before your own.
Our earliest graduates helped shape a young nation. The next century saw alumni such as the senator who authored the Great Compromise limiting U.S. slavery and the first Korean to study in the West.
Today Governor's graduates continue to lead internationally and locally as CEOs, policymakers, engineers, entrepreneurs, physicians, teachers, scientists, and more.
Always we have embraced change … to prepare each new generation with the knowledge to be adaptable and resourceful, and the character to be full citizens of the world.
Governor's graduates jump right into life at top colleges and universities.
Most gain admission to their first-choice institutions. Members of our 2014 graduating class were admitted to 26 of the U.S. News & World Report's top 50 liberal arts colleges.
Three staff members who are focused exclusively on college counseling ensure that all Governor's families have extensive access to resources and advice.
