High School Students

As a high school student preparing for college, you can take advantage of several pre-college programs offered at GWU that build your leadership skills and strengthen your confidence. Or, schedule a visit to explore campus and imagine yourself as a student!

These summer programs will help you discover what it takes to be a leader, to develop your entrepreneurial spirit, or challenge yourself with hands-on college-level work designed to build your skills and heighten your confidence.

The Summer Leadership Experience is a three-day event open to rising GWU first-year students to strengthen their leadership abilities while exploring their talents, passion, and purpose.

The Bringing Entrepreneurs and Students Together (BEST) Program develops high school students’ entrepreneurial skills.

The Honors Experience at GWU is a one-week college immersion for academically gifted and talented students.

Visit Campus

You can visit campus to see how Gardner-Webb’s mission to prepare you to make a difference for God and others’ lives is evident across campus. You can see that in the way we do our classes, ask students to participate in research or have students take the lead in service projects. See all our campus has to offer you from its spacious campus grounds, exciting division I athletics, and located in the beautiful foothills of North Carolina.

Now is a great time to plan a visit to campus and picture yourself as a Runnin’ Bulldog!
