The idea behind MGS is to offer a collegiate experience to high school students, further preparing them for higher education. The program seeks to bring together a diverse group of students and have them learn from and alongside one another while encouraging self-discovery.
Participating students will earn three college credit hours which can be used at The W or transferred to any university of their choosing.
“For 42 years, MGS has been home to the state’s best and brightest students. Our MGS theme for 2024 is ‘The Changemakers.’ We need changemakers who are primed and ready to embark on this exciting journey!” said Penny Mansell, director of the Center for Education Support at The W.
In 1981, Governor William Winter and the administration at The W established the MGS as a residential honors program. Since its establishment, MGS has served thousands of scholars, providing each with a high-quality academic program.
