Governor's Honors Program

It's that time of year again! Governor’s Honors Program (GHP) is a residential summer program for gifted and talented rising juniors and seniors. This type of instruction is significantly different than the typical classroom setting. Students are provided with cultural, social, and academic enrichment that prepares them to become our next generation of global critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders!  


Interest Meeting Sign-up: September 22


GHP Application: Due October 5

  • Students must be nominated by a teacher. 
  • Students will be chosen through DCSD to be cleared to apply to GHP. The application is rigorous, and we advise students to start working on it early so that they can come to teachers for revisions and edits. If their application is chosen, then they’ll be granted an interview at the DCSD level and then the semifinalist round in which they are called to interview. Finalists are chosen from there, and off they go to an unforgettable summer experience!
  • Students can be nominated in the following areas: Theatre, Visual Arts, World Languages (areas of focus: Chinese, French, German, Latin, or Spanish), Science (areas of focus: Biology, Chemistry, or Physics), Mathematics, Engineering (areas of focus: Mechanical Design, Mechanical and Electrical, or Computer & Software Engineering), Dance, Music (instruments and vocal), Social Studies, Communicative Arts (ELA), Agricultural Research, Biotechnology, and Science.

Advertise in the Yearbook

Want to reach a potential audience of nearly 2000 students, nearly 200 faculty and staff members, plus countless members of the community? Advertise in the yearbook!!! To begin the process, visit JOSTENS.COM, choose Dunwoody High as your school, and click “Yearbook Ads” under “Show Your Wildcats Pride.” Then select “Business Ad.”

Each yearbook costs more than $100 to make, and we heavily rely upon ad sales to try to make each yearbook more affordable than it would be without the funds from ads. Investing in a Dunwoody Yearbook ad not only builds toward that goal for all but also provides your business/organization/etc. with valuable exposure to the community!
