The Georgia GHP is a selective four-week 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 academic, cultural, and social enrichment necessary to become the next generation of global critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders. Selection is based on a combination of ability and interest and is highly competitive. Since the program is fully funded by the Georgia General Assembly, there is no charge for students to attend.
