Local students accepted to Advanced Academy of Georgia

September 30, 2013
CARROLLTON, Ga. – Four local high school students were recently accepted to the Advanced Academy of Georgia located on the campus of the University of West Georgia.

Andrew Gallagher, a junior at Lambert High School, Shauna Shahangian, a senior at Johns Creek High School, Maxwell Roberts, a sophomore at Centennial High School, and Trisha Dalapati, a junior at Centennial High School, began classes in August.

The Advanced Academy of Georgia is a residential, early entrance to college program at UWG for highly gifted and motivated high school students. The program was the first of its kind in Georgia.

Students apply and are accepted from high schools worldwide, reaching as far as India. To be accepted, students must meet high academic standards, including an exceptional grade point average and SAT or ACT scores. They also must submit a resume, essay and teacher recommendations and complete a competitive interview process.

Advanced Academy students remain enrolled in their original high schools as dual enrolled students to earn their high school diplomas. They live on the UWG campus in a residence hall specifically for academy students and take full-time UWG classes as a college student, earning both high school and college credit.
