PAVAN Governor's School for the Arts

PAVAN Governor's School is a rigorous 2-week summer education program for rising high school students in the fields of classical guitar, theater, visual arts and voice. Acceptance to this tuition-free program is merit-based only and all students must audition for the program. PAVAN serves high school students who are in public, private or home schools in the counties of Frederick and Loudoun.


Our goals are:
- Prepare students to engage the arts thoughtfully and creatively while becoming life-long learners and arts advocates.

- Offer instruction through classes, performances and in cross-disciplinary opportunities by a faculty of professional instructors. 

- Build audiences to appreciate and enjoy the arts.
