The Houston County Career Academy

Houston County Career Academy (HCCA) is located at 1311 Corder Road and is available as a part-time option to students who attend the five traditional high schools in the Houston County School System.

    Mission of Houston County Career Academy: To Ensure a Viable 21st Century Workforce for Houston County.

Academic Program

Houston County Career Academy is an extension of the programs of high schools in Houston County and is an off-campus center of Central Georgia Technical College. HCCA has a focus toward integrating academics and advanced career/technical education programs. Instructional methods are biased toward “project-based” instruction and will benefit from the alignment and seamless blending of academic courses with career, technical and agricultural education (CTAE) courses, the blending of high school with the rigor and expectations of college coursework, and the relevance resulting from the blending of public education with the priorities and expectations of business and industry. HCCA is governed by the Board of Directors of the Charter School under the control and management of the Houston County Board of Education. The Directors include parents, business representatives, educational representatives and a representative from Robins Air Force Base.

Organization

The Charter School represents a cooperative partnership among local business and industry as represented by the Warner Robins and Perry Area Chambers of Commerce, Houston County Development Authority, Robins Air Force Base, Houston County Schools, and Central Georgia Technical College.
