A total of 295 graduating seniors from schools across Georgia earned recognition this year. The program identifies and honors high school seniors who have achieved "excellence in school and community life."
It is coordinated by the GaDOE’s Excellence Recognition Office and through local coordinators in each public school system and in private schools throughout the state. Each Georgia Scholar receives a seal for his or her diploma.
Students eligible for Georgia Scholar recognition are high school seniors who exhibit "excellence in all phases of school life, in community activities and in the home." Georgia Scholars are students who have "carried exemplary course loads during the four years of high school; who performed excellently in all courses; who successfully participated in interscholastic events at their schools and in their communities; and who have assumed active roles in extracurricular activities sponsored by their schools."
