Congratulations to the following MPCS high school students who have been nominated to participate in the 2022 Governor’s Honors Program (GHP) statewide selection process: O. Causby (Science/Chemistry); K. Codrington (Dance); G. Ferary (Science/Physics); J. Ferary (Science/Physics); C. Finch (Visual Art); R. Van de Vate (Mathematics).
The Georgia Governor’s Honors Program is a summer residential academic and arts intensive for rising juniors and seniors. Each summer, nearly 700 students are selected from Georgia’s public and private schools to experience living and learning on the Berry College campus for four weeks. Students selected for participation represent the top quartile of the top percentile of their academic and artistic peers across the state. GHP is the oldest (since 1964), largest, and continuously-operating Governor’s school of its kind in the nation. Students attend at no cost; GHP is fully-funded by the Georgia state legislature.
GHP nominees undergo a multi-phase selection process that establishes those who will become participants in the summer residential program. Students are nominated in a “major” area of academic or artistic study and choose a minor area of study if they become participants in the summer program. Students study in their major area six days per week and in the minor area five days per week. More than 100 faculty and resident assistant staff members support the students in their GHP experience.
