The Arkansas Governor’s School (AGS) is a four-week summer residential program for upcoming high school seniors who are residents of the state of Arkansas. The program is funded by the Arkansas State Legislature as a portion of the biennial appropriation for Gifted and Talented Programs through the Arkansas Department of Education. State funds provide tuition, room, board, and instructional materials for each student who attends the
four-week program on the site of a residential college campus sponsored by the State.

The Arkansas Governor’s School is a non-credit program that seeks to create a unique experience for a select group of Arkansas’ best students – the potential leaders of the 21st century. Both inside and outside the classroom, AGS provides highly motivated, creative
students with an intellectual atmosphere. The excitement of intellectual and artistic pursuits and the expectation of significant conceptual gains permeate all aspects of the participants’ lives for the full four weeks.
