The Honors Experience is a one-week college immersion for academically gifted and talented students who are currently in the 9th – 11th grade. The program is held each summer on Gardner-Webb’s main campus in Boiling Springs, NC. This year, it will be June 24-29th, 2018.
We are looking for high school students who have already demonstrated excellence in the classroom and community. We will provide them with an opportunity to develop their skills in a hands on setting, under the instruction of our exceptional faculty and staff. Students will participate in two credit bearing college courses, designed to help develop confidence to pursue academic excellence, engage academics with Christian faith, and experience the impact of service learning.   
Students accepted into The Honors Experience will automatically be invited to Gardner-Webb’s Ignite Excellence Scholarship interviews during their senior year of high school, where they will compete for our most prestigious scholarship that awards full tuition as well as room and board, totaling over $40,000 per year.       

 Additionally, any child of an alumni will receive a $50 discount.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns about the program.

Assistant Director for The Honors Experience
