Governor's Honors Program

Valdosta State University (VSU) has hosted the state of Georgia’s Governor’s Honors Program (GHP) for over twenty years. GHP is a four-week summer instructional program designed to provide intellectually gifted and artistically talented high school students challenging and enriching educational opportunities not usually available during the regular school year. Activities are designed to provide each participant with opportunities to acquire the skills, knowledge and attitudes to become independent, life-long learners. GHP owns a library collection housed at Valdosta State University in Odum Library which includes a large collection of brass ensemble music. The GHP Library collection is also available to VSU's students, faculty, and staff.
