The Career Academy, located on Gibson Highway in Warrenton, is shown above.
Warren County Schools’ dual enrollment program is gaining steam.
According to Carole Jean Carey, school superintendent, Warren County is ranked eighth in the state in terms of percentage of students involved with dual enrollment.
This number is thanks to the Career Academy.
The Career Academy, located on Gibson Highway in Warrenton, currently serves 67 students from Warren and Glascock counties as well as some home school students. The courses are sponsored by both Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC) and East Georgia College.
According to Carey, the course credits are transferable to other colleges and technical colleges throughout Georgia, and the students can participate at no cost and with no impact to their HOPE scholarship.
Sixteen of the students are participating in the child development program, giving them the chance to graduate with not only a high school diploma but also a certification in child development.
Twelve students are participating in the Gas Metal Art Welding program, allowing them to become certified in welding upon graduation. An industrial construction class also allows the students to get hands-on experience, building new benches for the school’s football field.
Nine students are enrolled in the Nurse Aid program, and they too will be able to earn a certification upon graduation, allowing them to possibly get a job straight from high school.
