    Governor's Honors Program

     

    Finalists should be instructed to familiarize themselves with the GHP webpage at (http://gosa.georgia.gov/governors-honors-program). 

    Finalists will find additional information they need to complete the acceptance process in their application account (https://governorshonors.fluidreview.com/).

    Students can accept at any time between Friday, March 30, 2018 and Monday, April 9, 2018

     

    There is an absolute deadline for acceptances to be received no later than 11:59 PM on April 9, 2018.  After that time, we will begin notifying and accepting alternates for finalists who fail to notify us of their plans or do not accept the invitation.

     

    Over 3,000 students were nominated to the state level competition and over 1,600 of them participated in this year’s state interview/audition process.  Please share with them that the GHP selection process is not designed to provide feedback - only to rank the nominees within each area of nomination.  Given that, we are unable to share where any student ranked.  Due to budget constraints, we are limited to a specific number of finalists within each area, no matter how many gifted and talented nominees are interviewed.  We encourage you to reassure all of your nominees that they did their best and to be proud of their hard work. 

     

    If you have a student who wishes to decline the offer to participate, please have the student email us directly at ghp@gosa.ga.gov as soon as possible (copying ezitka@forsyth.k12.ga.us and the student’s parent/legal guardian) so that an alternate may be invited.

     

    As always, thank you for your commitment to GHP!

     

    The Governor's Honors Program is a four-week summer 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, life-long learners.

    Sophomore and junior homeschooled students who are interested in the program should contact the school coordinator in the district where they live or the county coordinator before Friday, September 9, 2018, to be included in the mandatory school interview and selection process.
