     Guide for Parents of a Governor's Honors Program (GHP) Nominated Student

    • If grades did not count, would your child still want to study deeply in the area of nomination on their own? 
    • What does your child's resume look like in that field outside of class projects? 
    • Do they go out of their way to learn more? Students need to truly be interested in the topic and invested in learning more deeply. 
    • Does your child have the social and emotional ability to adjust to difficult situations, handle being away from home for 4 weeks with people they don’t know?
    • Being smart and being “good at it” is only part of the equation.  A solid GHP student might not always be the most outgoing or always win competitions.   
    • GHP candidates are not always a straight A kid; sometimes just a hard worker who is passionate about learning in that subject is selected
