The Golden Isles Career Academy presents a new approach to learning, offering career preparatory opportunities for high school age students and college programs for citizens of all ages across the Glynn County community through a partnership with Altamaha Technical College.
The Career Academy is not a vocational school, although its core initiative is to provide hands-on career-driven learning and guidance. The Career Pathways Programs have been uniquely designed to provide essential learning tracks to 18 distinctive career curriculums – some of which are college preparatory focused through the Dual Enrollment Program, where students can actually earn college credit while still in high school. Career paths include: Veterinary Science, Automotive Service, Broadcast/Video, Construction, Dental Assisting, Culinary Arts, Graphic Design, and more.
After years of planning along with contributions from local businesses, the Board of Education, ESPLOST funds, a state grant and a land donation by the Development Authority, the Golden Isles Career Academy opened its doors on August 6, 2009.
Currently, more than 700 high school students are enrolled at the Golden Isles Career Academey. An additional 150 college students are enrolled in evening classes at the same campus.
This is a wonderful addition to our community. For more information, please visit www.gica.us
