Governor’s Honors Program 2017 Finalists Announced

Hallco Flame

Hall County Schools congratulates our twelve students who have been selected as finalists for the Georgia Governor’s Honors Program for the summer of 2017!

The Governor’s Honors Program, known as GHP, is a residential summer program for gifted and talented high school juniors and seniors. Administered by the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement (GOSA), GHP will take place this year on the campus of Berry College in Rome, Ga. The 2017 program will be the 54th summer, making it the longest continually running program of its kind in the nation. Over 3000 students from across the state applied, and 1700 students interviewed and auditioned in February, so we are very proud of our GHP finalists! Since the program is fully funded by the Georgia General Assembly, there is no charge for students to attend.

Students will begin their GHP adventure on the Berry College campus on June 18, 2017. For four weeks, students will spend the morning in their major area of nomination, exploring topics not usually found in the regular high school classroom. During the afternoons, students choose one of the other areas in which to study. The curriculum in all the areas is challenging and engaging. Evenings are filled with seminars, activities, concerts, and performances. Many of GHP’s past participants regard it as one of the most life-changing events in their lives.

Congratulations to Hall County Schools’ finalists for the 2017 Georgia Governor’s Honors Program!
