Academic Overview

Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School offers courses in all disciplines. While government and international studies are the themes, the comprehensive program allows a flexible approach for the student to understand the shrinking international community. In addition to this theme, students’ interest in science, math, the arts, health and physical education, international language, or other academic areas may serve as the focal point for their understanding of the world and for their development as global citizens.  Our slate of courses are offered at the minimum level of Honors and includes an expansive array of Plus Level, Advanced Placement, and University Dual-enrollment (Virginia Commonwealth University) options.  Opportunities to develop and expand learning are present not only in the classroom but also through various programs and extracurricular activities sponsored across departments.

In addition to course offerings specific to each discipline, general course offerings include:
Foundations of Independent Research and Communications
Economics and Personal Finance
Introduction to Programming
Student Ambassador
