Northwest Georgia College & Career Academy Event

To meet the workforce needs of manufacturers in Northwest Georgia, the Northwest Georgia College & Career Academy, a public charter high school within Whitfield County Schools, recently launched an Advanced Manufacturing & Business Academy (AMBA). The AMBA provides students with opportunities to learn about the vast career fields within manufacturing, logistics, and corporate administration that exist within the floorcovering industry and other area manufacturers. Students are provided with opportunities to complete industry-designed high school programs, college certificate programs, and compete for high school paid apprenticeships that can lead to scholarships, co-op/intern opportunities while in college, and full-time employment. Over 200 high school students have chosen to enter this program in year one.
