THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomas County Central High School officially broke ground on their Career Academy that should be ready for students next school year.

Students, faculty, and other community leaders celebrated today. Thomas County Central is one of only six schools statewide awarded a Career Academy Project grant worth 2.7 million dollars.

The PREP Academy, which stands for Preparing for Relevant Economic Pursuits will offer classes in Agriculture, Business, Construction, Engineering, Healthcare science, and Video Broadcasting.

"There are certain kids who just want to get that PREP Academy seal or certificate which meant they spent three years in a particular area and got that seal to go with their diploma. Other students may want to take a class just to see what it's like or maybe just have an interest in construction or video broadcasting and other areas," says Principal Joe Sharp.

Thomas County Central is the only school in the state to put their PREP Academy on their campus. Feedback
