The two-week program prepares students to face the academic and social challenges of college life.
The 180 students selected from around the globe to participate in Summer Honors are chosen for academic achievements, leadership potential, service to the community, and extracurricular involvement.  Barbee, who has been a student at Pinecrest Academy since first grade, is involved in a variety of sports and extracurriculars, including Varsity Football, Varsity Lacrosse, and Varsity Wrestling. He serves as Co-captain of the Wrestling team. He has lettered for three years in each sport.  Barbee has also been involved in the school's Theatrical Arts program, and has been a Student Ambassador at Pinecrest since 6th grade.  He is also a member of the Change for Georgia service program.

The Summer Honors program offers students a head start on their college career by earning six hours of academic credit. While outside of the classroom, students experience a wide variety of social activities they can expect to find at Lee. Summer Honors attendees will work on leadership rolls, service to the community, and be academically challenged during this program.
