Thank you for visiting Northwest Georgia College and Career Academy! The staff at NWGCCA have strong relationships between faculty, community partners and students. NWGCCA provides high school students with opportunities and experiences that assist them to pursue the knowledge and skills necessary for career readiness and success.
Using the academic and technical content, together with work readiness skills, and the apprenticeship experience, NWGCCA works to link education with economic and workforce development to support the Northwest Georgia region. The creation and nurturing of safe professional relationships cultivate creativity and reflect the belief that we are not just one part of the school system but we are part of the entire body encompassing the “One” in # One Whitfield.

The Georgia Alternate Assessment 2.0 (GAA 2.0) is designed to ensure that students with significant cognitive disabilities are provided access to the state academic content standards and given the opportunity to demonstrate achievement of the knowledge, concepts, and skills inherent in the standards. The Georgia Standards of Excellence and Extended Content Standards for students with significant cognitive disabilities drive the curriculum, instructional strategies, and assessment.
Whitfield County educators and community partners are helping provide teachers across the state with tools to better teach literacy. The Governor's Office of Student Achievement selected WCS to participate in a case study for the Growing Readers Program, a grant which provides high-quality professional learning to teachers on effective reading instruction. Georgia Public Broadcasting filmed lessons in two classrooms at Cedar Ridge Elementary to show how the grant is being implemented. Check out the video to see how WCS is making an impact!
