Berry College welcomes 660 talented high school students from across Georgia this Sunday for the prestigious Governor’s Honors Program.

More than 1,600 high school students from across the state competed for spots in the residential summer program at Berry for gifted and talented high school students.  The program offers instruction that is significantly different from the typical high school classroom and that is designed to provide students with academic, cultural, and social enrichment necessary to become the next generation of global critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders.

“We expect Georgia’s most talented students to make the most of this amazing place, delving deeply into its academic, artistic and recreational opportunities,” said Berry President Stephen Briggs.

Governor’s Honors Program is held June 17 – July 14 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. Berry College was selected to host the program in 2017 and 2018.
