     Governor's Honors Program

    The Governor's Honors Program is a residential summer program for gifted and talented high school students who will be rising juniors and seniors during the program.  The program offers instruction that is significantly different from the typical high school classroom and is designed to provide students with academic, cultural, and social enrichment necessary to become the next generation of global critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders. 

    GHP is held in mid-summer (mid-June to mid-July) as a premier residential educational experience.  Students attend classes in the mornings and afternoons in specific areas of study, and they participate in a wide variety of instructional, leadership, and social opportunities every evening.  (GOSA, 2018)
