Probe is an annual program of college fairs and guidance counselor workshops held throughout the state of Georgia. The program is managed by the Georgia Education Articulation Committee (GEAC), whose mission is to disseminate information and stimulate interest in postsecondary education for students in Georgia.

High school juniors and seniors from all Coweta high schools will have opportunities to meet with higher education representatives to ask questions about their institutions and schedule tours. The Georgia Student Finance Commission will also be in attendance to talk about the financial aid opportunities such as FAFSA and the HOPE scholarship.
