These intellectually gifted and artistically talented students will now be invited to complete an online state-level application by January 3, 2022. The semifinalists selected from that group will have the opportunity to interview or audition at Berry College on February 26, 2022. Finalists will be announced March 25, 2022.

Upon acceptance, finalists will participate in the elite, four-week, summer residential program at Berry College starting June 19, 2022. Students will attend classes in the mornings and afternoons in specific areas of study and discover life-changing instructional opportunities not found in a traditional classroom.

“This is a unique group,” says GHP Coordinator Paula Camp. “We have decorated musicians, student leaders who created societies or organizations inside and outside the classroom, and everything in between. This group is tenacious, hard-working, and focused. They will represent our school system well as they take another step closer to the ultimate goal – GHP.”

The Governor’s Honors Program remains fully funded by the Georgia General Assembly.
