Berry College was recently selected as the new site for Governor’s Honors Program, a four-week summer program for 650 gifted and talented Georgia high school students.

“We are thrilled to host the Governor’s Honors Program (GHP),” Berry College President Stephen Briggssaid. “Berry’s campus is an ideal setting for a residential program that offers innovative and engaging experiences for Georgia’s most talented students. We expect the GHP students to make the most of this amazing place and its academic, artistic and recreational opportunities. What a great way for them to test-drive what college can be.”

The program will move to Berry’s campus beginning in 2017, where participating students will be able to learn about fields ranging from engineering, mathematics, science and agricultural science to communicative arts, performing arts, visual arts, social studies and world languages. The Governor’s Office of Student Achievement selected Berry based on the school’s academic and residential environment and its partnerships and resources that will support the program.

“Our specialty is a great residential academic community and that fits with Governor’s Honors Program,” Berry College Vice President for Student Affairs Debbie Heida said. “We’ll treat these students as our own students.”
