College & Career Academy

Perhaps the most ambitious undertaking One Sumter’s efforts around workforce development and education centers on the foundation’s partnership with Sumter County Schools to pursue designation of a College and Career Academy (CCA) in Sumter County. With the CCA Steering Committee kicking-off its efforts in March of 2017, business and industry leaders have continued to drive the initiative to support a new model of experiential learning, with the potential to accelerate the quality and capability of our future workforce by partnering with Sumter County Schools, South Georgia Technical College, and Georgia Southwestern State University. Visiting CCAs with strong track records in Newnan-Coweta County, LaGrange-Troup County, Albany-Dougherty County, and Macon-Bibb County, industry leaders and educational professional have begun the rigorous process of research and evaluation around identifying career pathways for students, understanding financial mechanisms and governing structures, and pursuing the critical relationships with Sumter County’s business community that will create the backbone of this new education model.

Seeking application for the 2018 CCA Grant Cycle through the Technical College System of Georgia, One Sumter, Sumter County Schools and South Georgia Technical College have worked collaboratively to contract with industry expert Russ Moore of Seamless education Associates, Inc. to guide Sumter County through this process.

Georgia Power Foundation presented One Sumter with a donation to seed Sumter County’s College & Career Academy.
