The Lamar County College and Career Academy (LCCCA) was established June 2011 with the full support of the Lamar County Board of Education, the Lamar County Chamber of Commerce, the Lamar County Industrial Development Authority and our community and business leaders.
This charter school was created to ensure that every public school student in Lamar County receives the occupational education and technical skills to remain employable in an ever-changing global economy through lifelong learning. The Academy goals center on increasing academic achievement through relevant, project-based learning activities that engage and develop students' critical thinking skills.
Work ethics are another essential component in the Career Academy curriculum. Completing a sequenced program of study, a pathway, in the academy will prepare a student academically, technically, and socially for the work environment.
Students participating in LCCCA pathways have the opportunity to graduate high school with post secondary credits and nationally recognized credentials that will serve as an advantage in the job-market. The seven pathways offered at LCCCA focus on high skill, high wage, and high demand occupations in our area.
