Our Mission

The Tennessee Governor's School for the Arts exists to provide high quality arts education for gifted and talented high school students in the state of Tennessee. The pre-professional summer curriculum includes individual and group instruction designed to help each student explore and develop his or her talents in music, ballet, theatre, filmmaking, and visual art. About four hours a day, six days a week are spent working in the major area of concentration.  If you are a former student, visit the Governor's School Alumni Center.

The Tennessee Governor's School for the Arts is a month long summer program for rising 11th and 12th grade students in Tennessee. Administered by the State Department of Education, we offer study programs in art, dance, filmmaking, theatre, and music. Students are selected in competitive auditions during the months of January or February. Those eligible are Tennessee residents who attend public, private and home schools within the state.
