Creating the Pipeline of our Next Generation Workforce
With the full support of the Newton County Board of Education, the Newton County Chamber of Commerce, and our community and business leaders, the Newton College and Career Academy (NCCA) was created to enhance academic achievement and provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in postsecondary education and the workforce. Our goal is to provide students in Newton County high schools with requisite skills and knowledge to exceed the majority of U.S. Department of Education performance indicators; to increase the number of students in Newton County high schools receiving post-secondary credits through local post-secondary partners; and to help students become workplace ready in order to be gainfully employed or to continue their education and training in a variety of post-secondary options.
Students at NCCA will have the chance to connect more directly with their career paths and earn industry credentials in addition to their high school diploma, increasing the chance for our students to be gainfully employed in a very competitive work environment. Programs at NCCA focus in areas that are high skill, high wage, and high demand occupations.
