The Advanced Academy of Georgia is one of a very few different schools in the United States that offers early entrance to college to gifted and talented high school students. The Advanced Academy is a catalyst for students who wish to passionately pursue their academic interests so when they come to the University of West Georgia and enter the Advanced Academy, they can pursue research and advanced studies as high school students.

"Academy students save two years of their careers and their lives when they join the academy," said Dr. Beheruz N. Sethna, UWG president emeritus and founder of the Advanced Academy of Georgia. "This is a marvelous experience because academy students are living with and learning with their peers. In high school sometimes, unfortunately, it's not cool to be smart. Here, it's cool to be smart."
