Application Process

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. Nominees must submit their applications to the high school counselor who must email the application as a PDF document to the appropriate program in accordance with directions provided in the application.

Each high school is allowed one nominee for every 325 juniors, as follows:
1–325 enrolled juniors = 1 nominee for each Governor’s School
326–650 enrolled juniors = 2 nominees for each Governor’s School
651+ enrolled juniors = 3 nominees for each Governor’s School

A nominee may apply to only one Governor's School.

Applications are sent electronically to every public and private high school in New Jersey. Students who are residents of New Jersey who attend out-of-state high schools or are home schooled may submit their applications directly to the programs.
