The Colquitt County Achievement Center serves 6th through 12th grade students who have been expelled from their home schools. The Achievement Center, in partnership with Colquitt County High School, C.A. Gray Junior High School, and Willie J. Williams Middle School, is committed to helping our young students achieve at high levels by providing a society of support to students who have not been successful in the regular classroom. The Colquitt County Achievement Center is also partnered with Moultrie Technical College to increase the instructional and vocational resources available to our student body.
The Achievement Center provides a supportive, content-rich environment, and offers assistance and support to those students who are transitioning back to their home schools, college, or career. The school offers a comprehensive curriculum that is aligned with that of the Colquitt County School System. Students are prepared to return to the home-school having received competitive academic standards as well as remedial assistance as needed.
In accordance with disciplinary terms, students in the Achievement Center are restricted from school events, sports and clubs while attending.
The mission of Colquitt County Achievement Center is to unite home and school to meet the student’s academic, social, and emotional needs while preparing them to be responsible citizens.
The goal of Colquitt County Achievement Center is to develop the academic, social, and cognitive abilities of each student. We believe the best way to increase the academic success of our students is to address the social and emotional needs of our students. We strive to develop in our students lasting qualities of responsible citizenship: self-esteem, trust, self-discipline, and respect of others.
We do this by promoting conflict resolution skills, strengthening parent-child relationships, and requiring a high academic purpose for dedicated, achieving students.
The Colquitt County Achievement Center has the privilege of maintaining a small class size. The student-teacher ratio is kept below one to fifteen in the majority of classes. This allows teachers to instruct and evaluate students on an individual basis. The emphasis at Colquitt County Achievement Center is upon academic success; instructional time is protected though many programs designed to help students resolve external and internal conflict disruptive to their learning.
