Applications are now available for Winchester city and Frederick and Warren county students who wish to apply for Mountain Vista Governor's School for the 2013-2014 school year.
High school students who attend the school are challenged to their full potential for four hours a day in math, science, and the humanities.
The program encourages independent thinking to develop leaders in an college environment.
"You have to learn to budget your time, work in groups, and have more of that independent current level thinking, discussion, projects and choices that you might have in a college experience," said Dr. Rosanne Williamson, director of Mountain Vista Governor's School.
Accepted students are transported from their high school to a mountain vista school site and then taken back.
Sites are located on Lord Fairfax Community College campuses in Middletown and Warrenton.
