Colquitt County Achievement Center

Each Day - Excellence in Every Way

Principal's Message

Welcome to the Colquitt County Achievement Center Website!

I would like to thank you for taking the time to look inside our very unique learning environment.  Here at CCAC, we offer a blended learning educational experience combining direct teacher instruction, web-based APEX on-line learning, community service, and service learning projects.  Our student population currently ranges from middle school through twelfth grades.

Our students come to us for a variety of reasons. As a result, we tailor our instruction to each individual student's needs and their goals for the future.  Our staff of professional educators create a Personal Learning Plan (PLP) for each individual student.  The PLP is designed to afford students a menu of options including returning them to their regular school, graduation from Colquitt County Achievement Center, preparing them for the world of work, and/or continuing their education beyond high school.

As a staff, our desire is for our students to have every advantage afforded students in the regular education setting.  We are a technology-based, wireless learning environment providing our students with iPads, APEX Learning curriculum, Odysseyware, and individual GoogleApps accounts.

Our staff believes the "Rigor, Relevance, and Relationship" model is the framework to accomplish our goals.  We do not view our school as an alternative to the regular school environment.  Our students and staff collectively see CCAC as "a school of alternatives" and we strive every day to meet the needs of each individual student.

We welcome the opportunity to work with both students and parents in a unified effort to make all students successful and productive citizens.

Again, welcome to Colquitt County Achievement Center!
