New Student Registration Information

This page was last updated on 4/11/19.  

Congratulations on your admission to the Maggie L. Walker Governor's School! We are excited about your opportunity to learn and grow with us during the next four years. Below, we describe several important steps to get to know more about our school and for our school to get to know you.

The New Student Registration Evening for the Class of 2023 is scheduled for Tuesday, April 23rd, 2018 at 6:00 pm.  This program will provide students and parents with information about courses, clubs, sports, and activities at MLWGS. Faculty and students will be available to assist families in choosing classes and learning more about our school. 

To help prepare for this evening program, we are sending out a mailing on March 29th. The materials contain information about freshman course registration and important placement tests that students will take online to assist with course selection. Students will need to take the placement tests by the due dates specified in the mailing so that academic departments can make student course recommendations at course registration on April 23rd. Make sure to bring your completed Rising 9th Grader Course Registration Form on the 23rd so that you can get approval for course requests and register for classes.

For your convenience, we are posting the contents of the mailing below as well as the Powerpoint presentation from the April 23rd Freshman Registration evening as they become available.

If you have questions about Placement Tests, please contact the appropriate department chair indicated in the placement test letter via emailIf you are unable to complete a placement test by the due date, please email the contact person as indicated in the placement test letter. Due to the problem with the mailing not reaching all families, we recognize that some students may need an extension to complete the placement tests. It will be beneficial for student course planning to attempt to complete the placement tests as soon as possible.

Most other questions will be answered on April 23rd, but if you have a question that needs to be answered before Freshman Registration night, please contact the freshman school counselor, Karl Zweerink, at kzweerink@gsgis.k12.va.us or calling 804-354-6800 ext 3210.

Schedules for rising freshmen will be sent by mail in mid August.

We look forward to working with you at Maggie Walker!
