Their system will help us consolidate and integrate registration and health information into a centralized and secure location.

Once you are logged in please add your participant (the student attending Governor's School), click register for a session, and select “Humanities” or “VPA.” Humanities students will be directed to select one course from each of three sessions. Humanities students should note that class size is limited and spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. VPA students will be asked to select their subject area. The subject area curriculum in VPA is predetermined so no further selection options will be needed. Additionally, all forms in the student health profile must be completed. Please note that there is an option to upload a scan of your insurance card and the student’s driver’s license.

The security, confidentiality and privacy of your camper’s personal health information will always be protected. Only Radford University’s health staff, the Governor’s School Director (Paul Thomas), and the Resident Directors (Meghan Carroll and Ben Hogan) will have access to attendee health information, and the site is secure, encrypted, and password protected.

Online registration must be complete in order for students to be assigned a room and class schedule.
