Please do not contact the Governor's Office of Student Achievement with questions or concerns. The first stop for answers and solutions is the GHP Coordinator at Pope HS, Mrs. White ([email protected]). If she cannot help you, she will contact the county GHP coordinator.
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 and seniors in Georgia's public, private, and home schools 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 finalists.
Home School Information:
Home school parents must contact the GHP coordinator at their local high school to obtain an application and to set up and interview time for their student. Please contact the county GHP coordinator ([email protected]) immediately.
Check back soon! It will be announced Monday, Sept. 9!
