The Northwest Georgia College and Career Academy (NWGCCA) is a public charter school within the Whitfield County School system.  As a charter, NWGCCA has flexibility to be innovative and creative in meeting the academic and career educational needs of area students in order to prepare them for success beyond high school and in the workplace.  

In partnership with the local board of education, NWGCCA is governed by a board of directors of 9-13 members who represent local business/industry, post-secondary partners, parents, educators, and the community.  The board of directors sets the overall strategic direction for the school and makes decisions regarding curriculum, budget, and staffing.
