Regional Programs

Essex County Public Schools works in partnership with two Regional Programs to offer our students an array of course offerings and opportunities. 

Chesapeake Bay Governor's School  

The Chesapeake Bay Governor's School (CBGS) provides high-ability and gifted students from the Northern Neck and the Middle Peninsula with an enriched learning experience. Students have the opportunity to gain knowledge in math, science, technology, and research, and further their understanding of marine and environmental sciences. The program is designed to meet the unique needs of gifted students through non-traditional teaching and learning techniques. Admission is highly competitive and is based on academic performance, standardized achievement testing, and a demonstrated interest in science and mathematics.

Northern Neck Technical Center  
The Northern Neck Technical Center Governor's STEM Academy for Agriculture and Maritime Studies is an advanced educational facility that provides career and technical education opportunities to students from six counties and the Town of Colonial Beach. With its state-of-the-art facilities and its commitment to 21st-century learning trends, the NNTC offers students an enriching and comprehensive educational experience.
