Governor's Honors Program

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. The state level Governor’s Honors Program (GHP) Interview Event is by invitation only for state semi-finalists. The selection process begins with local school competitions in early fall.


The Bartow County School District Process:

  • Students interview at the local school level
  • Selected students interview at the system (county) level
  • County ‘winners’ complete the state application process
  • The state selects semi-finalists
  • Semi-finalists interviewed by state
  • State names finalists


Bartow County’s District level interview process is similar to the state GHP interview system and provides only one date and one format for county level interviews.  The interview process may vary based on the area of major study.

Please contact your local high school for more information regarding the GHP interview process.
