ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Technical College boasted some improvements over the past year.

The school released its 2016 annual report.

It shows 93 percent of their graduates got jobs in the field they studied.

Another success was the Move on When Ready Program, where high schoolers in Georgia get a chance to earn college credit.

340 high school students enrolled in the program last year.

But President Dr. Anthony Parker said the school needs to work on its enrollment numbers.

"That's our biggest challenge to get individuals to invest a year, a year in a half to two years of their time preparing for a future that we believe is going to be extremely bright if they take the opportunity to utilize the resources that we offer," said Dr. Parker. 

School staff plan to expand the program offerings, specifically adding more manufacturing courses.

Also, the school will hold it's first ever graduation ceremony for its newest program - Industrial Operations -- this Thursday.
