About Georgia's BEST
The Georgia’s BEST program is one of Georgia’s most ambitious projects for supporting the success of Georgia’s students, schools, and educators. The University of West Georgia developed the Georgia’s BEST program with input from school districts, Regional Education Service Agencies, and other external expert partners. Ultimately, this program is a collaborative structure for educator preparation maximizing relevance, efficiency, and stability.
The Georgia’s BEST program allows selected educators the opportunity to advance their professional education in highly relevant programs at little to no personal financial cost or student loan debt. Participants in this program will learn with and from some of the most remarkable educators in Georgia while advancing their careers.
The Georgia’s BEST program serves four major purposes:
- Provide outstanding and professionally relevant graduate programs to Georgia educators;
- Streamline pathways to graduation and maximize cost efficiencies through collaboration;
- Remove the challenge of student loan indebtedness from Georgia educators; and
- Bring stability and security to Georgia’s professional educator workforce.
We look forward to this journey with you, supporting you in your service to Georgia’s students and families.
