Some of the benefits of the GSC Honors program include:
The program is designed for students of high academic ability to take honors versions of some of their core courses. Honors classes provide an excellent opportunity for gifted students to develop their scholarly skills and gain more in-depth understanding of their fields of interest.
- small classes which emphasize discussion, analysis, and creativity (rather than lecture and memorization)
- development of critical thinking and independent study skills
- early registration
- experience presenting original scholarly work at the state and regional Honors Conference
- scholarships—both Honors Scholarships and Travel Grants (for overseas travel) available
Moreover, this opportunity can be especially beneficial if you are looking to continue your academic program at another school in the future or want to be approved to join one of our competitive 4-year programs.
Finally, honors courses are often where students develop lifelong friendships with those who share their interests.
