About GOSA


Georgia's students are prepared for work and careers


The Governor's Office of Student Achievement collaborates with education agencies to improve student achievement and conducts research, evaluations and audits to ensure that programs and schools are having positive impact on student achievement.

Core Values

To achieve our mission, GOSA conducts all business according to high standards of transparency, accessibility, objectivity, strategic collaboration, and innovation.


While GOSA's direct affiliation remains with the Governor's Office, it also works closely with all of Georgia's education agencies, including the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE), the University System of Georgia (USG), the Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL), the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG), the Georgia Student Finance Commission (GSFC), and the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC).
