Today we are delivering on our promise to Georgia's students to provide an innovative and relevant approach to education. The partnerships of local school systems, Technical Colleges and area businesses provide an unbelievable launching pad for Georgia students. During these tough economic times, it is now more important than ever to give our students the promise of higher achievement and a path to a successful career. Career academies provide that relevant learning environment and a proven record of high graduation rates and 100% job placement or post secondary opportunities. We have great expectations for the Athens Community Career Academy and the students who will graduate prepared for the 21st century workforce.
