Located on the campus of the University of West Georgia, Academy students have many of the amenities and opportunities available to regular college students, while also receiving the structure and support provided by our in-depth program. Although academic achievement is a primary emphasis, an endless number of social and recreational activities enrich life at the Academy. Ultimately, the Academy experience serves as a foundation for life-long connections and opportunities.
After completing the Academy, students may continue their higher education at the University of West Georgia or apply to another institution. Academy students have been accepted into many other prestigious universities, and many Academy students stay at UWG as part of the Honors College.
Both personal and scholastic growth are fostered when The Academy's supportive social and academic environments are combined with the vast resources of the University of West Georgia. If you would like more information about how to join the outstanding group of students in the Advanced Academy of Georgia, Request More Information or contact Kate Theobald, Academy Recruiter.
It's also worth noting that we have a very high acceptance rate at Georgia Institute of Technology.
"Georgia Tech appreciates our close relationship with The Advanced Academy at UWG. The applicants we receive from this program are typically well prepared academically and socially ready for the challenges of independent college life. Their time management, study skills and exposure to course rigor, and the pace and depth of college courses will serve them well in any undergraduate experience."
