Mission Statement

The Blue Ridge Environmental Studies Regional Summer Governor's School for the gifted provides its students with two weeks of stimulating and challenging learning experiences in the area of field biology and ecology planned and delivered by highly qualified instructors committed to an interdisciplinary curriculum approach. The Blue Ridge Environmental Studies program provides opportunities for intellectually gifted children to work:
* with their intellectual peers;
* on real problems in the area of environmental management;
* in an atmosphere of intellectual freedom and critical inquiry;
* at a level of intellectual expectation and depth of inquiry not generally attainable in a regular classroom

Summer 2018 BREGS Session 

BREGS will be held June 18 - June 28, 2018 at Signal Knob Middle School in Strasburg, Virginia

Our Theme will be: REPURPOSE!

This year we will have several opportunities for students to bring in items for our Community Service Projects. We are collecting items for the animal shelter (Kitten Chow, Kitten Milk Replacer, kitten bottles, Canned kitten food, Non clumping kitty litter, laundry detergent, Senior Dog food, Dog Treats,  durable dog toys, and small heating pads) canned food for the Food Pantry, and old shoes for Save-a-Sole.


During the 2015 and 2016 sessions we learned about the Cradle 2 Cradle concept. This is a goal that we should always be striving toward. During the 2017 session our theme was to RETHINK! our approach to environmental stewardship as we continue on our C2C journey! This year our theme is REPURPOSE!
