SELECTION PROCESS

AN UNPARALLELED OPPORTUNITY

 

C5 Georgia’s selection is rigorous and competitive. We receive hundreds of completed applications each year and only 40 to 70 students (half boys and half girls) are selected to join C5 Georgia. Only those students who participate in the full process will be considered for selection.

 

The C5 selection process has 4 key components:

  • Step 1: Nomination
  • Step 2: Application & Letters of Recommendations
  • Step 3: Interviews
  • Step 4: Evaluation & Selection
