The Appalachian Summer Regional Governor's School has two primary focus areas. One is to provide a variety of academic experiences in arts, science, and technology to a diverse group of academically gifted high school students. The second focus is to provide a summer enrichment experience that is academically and intellectually challenging for gifted students in an environment in which students can reach their individual learning potential.

The Governor's School serves selected rising high school sophomores, juniors, or seniors in Bland, Carroll, Grayson, Smyth, and Wythe counties, and the city of Galax. It is funded and coordinated jointly by these area public schools, Wytheville Community College, and with funding by the Virginia Department of Education.
