Prince William County Public Schools is pleased to provide a wide range of high school program opportunities for our students. Students may participate in the comprehensive program at their base high school, apply for the specialty program at their base high school, or apply to transfer to another high school for a specialty program. 

In addition to specialty programs, students may apply to Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology located in Fairfax, or to the The Governor’s School @ Innovation Park, a two-year program for selected high school juniors developed by PWCS, Manassas City, and Manassas Park Public School Divisions in cooperation with George Mason University. The program is located on George Mason University’s Science and Technology Campus.

Additionally, students may apply for a Summer Residential Governor’s School Program.

We hope you will consider the wide range of choices available to Prince William County students.

High School Program Information Meetings 

Students and their parents are invited to investigate the variety of specialty programs available to students as high school options. Two general information sessions in October introduce all special opportunity programs available at the high school level and offer an overview of the application process. In addition, information sessions will also be held at each high school to allow students to visit the school site and explore the program further.
