    Step 4: Bring the "Student Achievement Info" and "Counselor Verification Form" to your counselor as soon as possible!


    All Governor's School applications are due to the Counseling Office no later than December 1, 2020. This is different than the deadline listed on the Governor's School website; counselors need time to write letters of recommendation, assemble application materials, and ensure that applications are postmarked on time! 


    You must submit your application by the FHS deadline to your counselor! Applications submitted by students directly to the Governor's School will not be accepted! Your counselor will mail your applications.
