Coming Soon: FHS College and Career Academy

Coming soon, the Fitzgerald High School College and Career Academy!



Dr. Shawn Haralson and the Ben Hill County Board of Education in partnership with local business and industry, the Development Authority, Wiregrass Technical College, the FHSCCA Governance Board and the Irwin County Board of Education jointly submitted the College and Career Academy Grant Application on September 7, 2018.  After receiving feedback on the grant application in mid-October, the school district and its partners were invited to present their grant application to the grant committee on November 8, 2018 in Atlanta. The grants will be awarded to the top four school districts with each district receiving $3.2 million in late November. Ben Hill County and its partners hope to be awarded the grant and to help implement the Fitzgerald High School College and Career Academy.
