Berry welcomes hundreds of gifted high schoolers

Hundreds of high school students will interview for the Governor’s Honors Program this Saturday, Feb. 26, at Berry College.

The Georgia Governor’s Honors Program is a residential summer program for rising junior and senior high school students - also held on Berry's campus. The program includes a wide array of majors ranging from fine arts to engineering.  Students attend classes in the mornings and afternoons in specific areas of study and participate in a wide variety of social and instructional opportunities every evening.

According to Casee Gilbert, Berry director of hospitality and events, the college typically welcomes 1,650 high school students for these interviews and a final 650 students will earn a spot for this summer. The program runs from June 19 – July 16.

Governor's Honors offers instruction that is significantly different from the typical high school classroom, according to the GHP website. It is designed to provide students with academic, cultural, and social enrichment necessary to become the next generation of global critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders.
