FRHSD Students Selected for New Jersey Governor's School Summer Programs

Students were accepted to Governor’s School summer programs Juniors from various Freehold Regional High School District schools have been selected for the prestigious Governor’s School summer programs.

Matthew Goldman (Colts Neck High School), Varun Kapoor (Freehold Township High School), and Rohan Malik (Howell High School) were accepted to the Governor’s School of Engineering & Technology at Rutgers University School of Engineering. Sara Recarey (Howell High School) was accepted to the Governor’s School in the Sciences at Drew University.

The Governor’s School of Engineering & Technology is a four-week program where students are immersed into engineering and technology with others who share their interests. Scholars will be taking four academic classes, completing an intensive research and/or design project in a group of three to five students, going on site visits to local corporations, and meeting equally talented peers and professionals from across the state.

The Governor’s School in the Sciences is a three-week program which broadens the scholars' appreciation and knowledge of science through exposure to a range of scientific topics and scientists. The program introduces students to a hands-on research experience in a student's area of interest through a series of courses, laboratories, projects, lectures, and other activities centered on math and science. Students benefit from working with professors in Drew University’s strong undergraduate science program, and they learn about possible career paths from the faculty and from some of New Jersey's leading industrial, governmental, and academic representatives.
