While 2014 is the Fifty-first summer of the program’s existence. It is the First year GHP will be administered by the Governor's Office of Student Achievement (GOSA). In July 2013, Gov. Nathan Deal after being at odds with state School Superintendent John Barge, signed an executive order striping GHP administration from the Georgia Department of Education.

GHP is a residential summer program for gifted and talented rising high school juniors and seniors, and the longest continually running program of its kind in the nation. Nearly 3,000 students interviewed and auditioned on three weekends in January and February, to select approximately 690 participants. The Georgia General Assembly, with no charge to attending students, funds GHP.

Students will arrive at VSU on Sunday, June 22, for four weeks of intense learning activities in their area of nomination in the morning, and their afternoons filled exploring a second area of study. Their evenings are engaged with seminars, activities, concerts, performances, study, and laundry.
