To be eligible for one of the programs of the Governor’s School of New Jersey, students must be residents of New Jersey and must have completed their junior year of high school.
Students who meet the eligibility requirements should speak with their guidance counselor and/or science or math teacher to discuss their interest in the program. The guidance counselor and/or science or math teacher will explore the possibility of nominating the student to participate in this exciting and worthwhile opportunity. Students may not submit an application without being nominated by their high school’s nominating committee.
Each high school is allowed one nominee for every 325 juniors, as follows:
1–325 enrolled juniors = 1 nominee for each Governor’s School
A nominee may apply to only one Governor's School.
