The program is held each summer on Gardner-Webb’s main campus in Boiling Springs, NC. Last year’s inaugural event was a great success and we hope to make this one even better! This year, it will be July 14-19th, 2019. 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.Charlotte National College Fair: The Charlotte National College fair will be on March 17, 2019 from 12-4 p.m. at the Park Expo and Conference Center.
