The Georgia Governor’s Honors Program (GHP) 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 the 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 residential educational experience on a college or university campus. Students attend classes in the mornings and afternoons in specific areas of study, and they participate in a wide variety of social and instructional opportunities every evening. Meals and rooms are provided by the program with the only required and expected costs to the students being travel expenses to and from the interviews, a few basic supplies for classes and dorm rooms, and spending money as desired during the program.
Students must be nominated to interview for the Denmark GHP program by a teacher. Teachers nominate students in the spring before the school year ends and again in August when the new school year begins. This page will be updated with the 2024 timeline and application when it becomes available. We currently have 6 students attending The 2023 Governor's Honors Program from June 19 - July 15, 2023 at Georgia Southern University.
