Description:

This grant will support the creation of the Fair Bluff Career Technical Academy (the Academy), which will offer a blended high school curriculum that will integrate core curricula focused on National Industry Skill Standards into the student’s daily coursework. While meeting state requirements for graduation, students will simultaneously be working toward a recognized certification in their chosen field of study. Technical programs offered will include construction trades, metals manufacturing, culinary arts and communications. Students may also participate in an Industrial Cooperative Training Program allowing them to work in local industry. The Academy will partner with Southeastern Community College to provide classes via the Continuing Education Division. The school will serve primarily students who have or are at risk of dropping out of high school. The goals of this project are to reduce dropout rates, increase employer satisfaction with Columbus County Schools’ graduates, decrease remediation rates and increase enrollment at the local community college.
