CHANGING THE FACE OF SECONDARY EDUCATION
Jones County students now have access to training in the area of construction, welding, engineering (coming Fall 2019), healthcare science, information technology, and many more of the skills needed to compete in our global workforce.
Currently, 80 percent of jobs require some sort of post-secondary education. JCCCA is working to prepare students for this education prior to high school graduation. JCCCA has expanded dual enrollment in both academic and occupational areas at our campus, and has expanded work-based learning and youth apprenticeship opportunities in a variety of industries.
Offerings at JCCCA are driven by economic projections as indicated by the Governor's High Demand Career Initiative Report, Middle Georgia Regional Consortium projection data, CGTC Occupational Outlook Data for our region, as well as input from regional business and industry.
There is no longer a "one size fits all" approach to education.
Rather, each student's path will suit their individual career development needs.
