What is GHP?
The Georgia Governor's Honors Program (GHP) is a four-week summer
residential instructional program designed to provide intellectually
gifted and artistically talented high school students challenging
and enriching educational opportunities not usually available during
the regular school year. Activities are designed to provide each
participant with opportunities to acquire the skills, knowledge and
attitudes to become independent, lifelong learners.
Who can participate?
Rising juniors (current sophomores) and seniors (current juniors)
may be nominated by their teachers.
Students are nominated in a specific instructional area in which
their abilities, aptitudes and interest lie. Each school system or
private school is assigned a nomination quota based on the average
daily attendance of its 10th and 11th grades. Transcripts of grades
and records, nomination forms, endorsements and other pertinent
information are submitted to substantiate the nominations. Local
nominees are then sent to statewide screening interviews/auditions.
The written evidence and data gathered in the student
interview/audition are used to evaluate nominees and select
