GSSM accepting applications for STEM, residential programs

on Monday, 16 May 2022. Posted in Local News

   The South Carolina Governor’s School for Science + Mathematics is still accepting applications for its Residential and STEM Foundations. Online applications are available at www.scgssm.org.

    GSSM is South Carolina’s only two-year, public, residential high school dedicated to the advanced study of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. GSSM also offers high-caliber courses in economics and the humanities.

      Motivated juniors and seniors come to the GSSM campus in Hartsville to participate in this life-changing program. The residential program’s first-class academic experience is enhanced by state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, creative classroom experiences, and independent study options. Students enjoy college and graduate level classes and mentored scientific or economics research in the summer between their junior and senior years.

      GSSM residential applicants should be current South Carolina residents, high school sophomores (inquire about exceptions), and have at least 10.5 high school credits before the end of the 2021-2022 school year, including geometry, algebra I and II, English I and II, a social studies course, and a lab science course.

     Applications are also open for STEM Foundations: GSSM’s Online Diploma Program. STEM Foundations combines the excellence of a GSSM education with the convenience of learning from home. Created for rising juniors in the state of South Carolina, STEM Foundations is an online school with a high-level STEM-focused curriculum. Utilizing a cohort model, courses meet synchronously and are taught online using Zoom. Students have online access to teachers’ office hours, academic advising, academic tutoring, college counseling, and student support services. Students admitted to this program will begin their junior year in fall 2022 and graduate in spring 2024.
