Governor’s Honors Program 2014-2015

The nomination process for the Governor’s Honors Program is currently underway. The Governor’s Honors Program (GHP) is a residential summer instructional program designed to provide high-achieving and artistically talented high school students challenging and enriching educational opportunities not usually available during the regular school year. Rising juniors and seniors in Georgia’s public and private high schools, as well as students enrolled in home school, may be nominated by their teachers. This year’s program, located at a Georgia university, will be in session from June 21 through July 18. If the idea of spending four weeks this summer on a college campus, studying in-depth an academic field of interest with outstanding high school and college instructors appeals to you, speak to one of your academic teachers as soon as possible or swing by Room 327 to see Ms. Dye for more information. The Governor’s Office of Student Achievement provides additional information at the GHP website:
https://gosa.georgia.gov/governors-honors-program.

There will be an informational meeting for students interested in the academic  and technology areas of GHP on Thursday, September 25, at 3:40 in Room 327.
