Gaining Literacy Through Arts, Culture, and History is Goal of Newest Governor's School

​Creativity is intelligence having fun June 25-30​

​​​​​​​​Albert Einstein once said, “Creativity is intelligence having fun," and in that spirit, the state of West Virginia offers the Governor's School for Literacy​​​​Through Arts, Culture, and History (GSLACH), inviting students to delve into undertakings that allow them the time and opportunity to read, think, explore, ​create, listen, speak, and experience how literacy impacts their lives through a fun, week-long experience like no other. Current​ 7th and 8th grade students  ma​y attend, based on application acceptance. 

GSLACH students will engage in a variety of literacy projects and activities related to the arts, culture, and history.  The goal is to open students' eyes to the power and creativity afforded to them through literacy; to that effect, students will learn the importance of literacy not only in the arts, culture, and ​history, but also in their daily lives in general.  There will be one session for 110 current seventh and eighth grade students. Students will attend June 25​-30 at the WV Culture Center State Museum and the University of Charleston.

All students and their chaperones will live in a residence hall at the University of Charleston.  Don't hesitate to take advantage of this unique opportunity! Take your time and complete your application fully, submit by the published deadline, and you may be one of the wonderful WV students chosen to attend the GSACH in 2023.
