Houston County Career Academy, "Houston County's Best Kept Secret" was recently named the Lieutenant Governor's 2015 Career Academy of the year.
My program, (one of six College programs at the Career Academy - soon to be more), has sixty-six (10th-12th grade) students; all girls this year but occasionally there are a few boys as well. Students who remain in the program a full two years earn 21 college credits, and complete 7 Cosmetology courses. The program is a wonderful jump start on a career in Cosmetology.
