WELCOME FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Welcome to the Golden Isles College and Career Academy (GICCA). I am excited that you have chosen to attend our school and am honored to serve as your Principal for the coming school year. The mission of GICCA is to ensure a viable 21st century workforce for Glynn County. Recent studies and data have shown that there is a shortage of workers across the country. This is particularly true in the areas of skilled and technical labor. At the same time, the country is also facing a gap in workers equipped with the proper soft skills and work ethic needed to be successful in today’s workforce. At GICCA, we strive to create an environment where students will grow in both career skills and work ethic to be successful regardless of their career pathway. We want to ensure that Glynn County has the trained and motivated workforce it needs to grow our businesses and community.
At GICCA you will find we offer a wide range of career training opportunities as well as college opportunities through dual-enrollment. We also offer work based learning opportunities to enable students to practice the skills and work ethic learned in our classrooms. Additionally, we offer numerous opportunities for extra-curricular and leadership opportunities through our student service organizations. The staff and I look forward to working with you this upcoming school year and helping you to realize your passions.
