The Governor's School of North Carolina is a publicly funded residential summer program for intellectually gifted high school students in the state of North Carolina. The Governor's School enrolls approximately 600 students each summer, half each in programs housed at Salem College in Winston-Salem (known as Governor's School West) and at Meredith College in Raleigh (known as Governor's School East). Governor's School is a program of he North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.
Governor's School serves public, private, and home schools. Students who attend Governor's School are nominated by their schools or school systems and selected on the basis of grades, test scores, an application essay and, for arts students, an audition.

The Duke Talent Identification Program (TIP) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving academically gifted and talented students. Duke TIP works with students, their families, and educators to identify, recognize, challenge, engage, and help students reach their highest potential. now in its 35th year, the 7th Grade Talent Search identifies bright seventh graders who scored at or above the 95th percentile on one or more of the 2013-14 End-of-Grade tests while attending elementary or middle school. Candidates are invited to take the ACT or the SAT college entrance exams as seventh graders, which allows them greater insight into their academic abilities. In addition, they gain valuable benefits and have access t unique resources for gifted students.
