Baldwin High School

I started Georgia College Early College in the seventh grade. It has been one of the best experiences I’ve had so far in my life. Early College has given me hope for my educational future. This program has supported me and also has given me challenges that have taught me life lessons. I’ve grown so much, I’ve learned time management, self-motivation, and how to be more efficient in my work. Seeing as this program is separated from the “home schools,” you learn to ask others for help. This brings you and your classmates together, creating a family. Georgia College Early College has taught me more personal things such as: it’s okay to ask for help; it doesn’t mean you’re “stupid”, and better presentation skills. This program has constantly pushed me out of my comfort zone, forcing me to network and give class presentations, so now I can stand proudly amongst others, sharing my thoughts and ideas. In all, this program has taught me courage, and hard work.
