Community

The Maggie Walker Governor’s School is a public school funded by the 12 school districts it serves and by the Commonwealth of Virginia, but there is a long history of additional support provided by public-private partnerships and by community volunteerism.

Resources from our Foundation, PTSA, and Booster Groups enable students to engage in curricular and co- and extra-curricular opportunities beyond that which are typically available in high school.  Such opportunities include an expansive slate of dual-enrollment university and AP courses; AP assessments; local, state, national, and international learning experiences; notable speakers; contemporary equipment and technology; athletic enhancements, etc.
