State University of West Georgia
Carrollton, Georgia, USA
The Advanced Academy of Georgia is a residential, early-entrance-to-college program for gifted and talented high school-aged students. Students generally apply during their sophomore or junior year, but we also occasionally accept younger, high ability students. We are located on the campus of the University of West Georgia, which is a comprehensive University offering more than 20 different degree programs with more than 50 majors, including the University's 2-2 Regent's Engineering Transfer Program with the Georgia Institute of Technology. The Advanced Academy of Georgia is one of nine programs in the United States that provide opportunities for gifted and talented high school-aged students to earn concurrent high school and college credit in a full-time residential program. The Academy is NOT a high school. Our students exclusively take regularly scheduled university classes taught by university professors for which they receive high school and university credit. We explore and develop the unique gifts of each individual mind, heart, body, and spirit, offering an unparalleled opportunity for individuals to achieve their dreams. At the Advanced Academy, academic opportunities are virtually unlimited. Whether the dream is to become an astronaut, chemical engineer, software designer, medical professional, author, musician, or professor, we have a program for you! Our Mission The mission of the Advanced Academy of Georgia is to provide an enriched, residential, early-entrance-to-college program for carefully selected, bright, and motivated high school students who are interested in accelerating their academic careers. The Academy seeks to provide opportunities for educational advancement in an environment that also supports students in developing the skills that will help to ensure their success, both in the Academy and as future leaders....
