Governor's Honors Program

General GHP Information

The Georgia Governor's Honors Program (GHP) is a four-week, summer residential program designed to provide intellectually gifted and artistically talented high school students challenging and enriching educational opportunities. 

The program offers instruction that is significantly different from the typical high school classroom, and that is designed to provide students with academic, cultural, and social enrichment necessary to become the next generation of global critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders.  The Georgia Governor's Honors Program is fully funded by the Georgia General Assembly and operates at no cost to participants.  

High school sophomores and juniors in public, private, and home schools are eligible for nomination in one of twelve areas.
