For New Students 2016-17

SVGSWe are excited to welcome you to SVGS for 2016-17.  You have worked hard for this opportunity and have been selected to become a valued part of a unique educational environment.  Congratulations to you!

We welcome you as the next class of talented individuals who will continue the traditions of excellence and the culture of achievement at SVGS.  You will create the community in which you will live, learn and work in for the next two years.  At SVGS, we build a new community of learners with each new class.  A community of learners is defined as a group of people who share values and beliefs and who actively engage in learning from one another.  Students and teachers are actively learning together.  Connected.  Cooperative.  Supportive.

We provide a challenging environment for learning in the arts and sciences,  to provide practical and professional opportunities for building skills and knowledge necessary for success here, in college, and through life.  At SVGS, students are asked to demonstrate their abilities and talents in different ways and to become effective independent learners and thinkers. We help students understand and appreciate their ability to positively affect the world as the leaders, thinkers and creators of the next generation. This is our responsibility to you.

In every community it takes work to make it great. Collectively, you have the power and talent to do so and that is what we expect.  Be responsible to yourself by respecting and trusting your abilities. Take responsibility for your own learning.  Set ambitious but realistic goals for yourself.  Don’t undersell or overextend yourself.

You benefit from being recognized in the community and colleges as being a governor school student only because of the legacy, work and service of those students before you. It is your responsibility to continue that tradition.

We appreciate students’ accomplishments as evidence of what they have done but challenge them to gain new skills and to understand their potential for what they can and will accomplish in the future.
