The Tift County Schools offers career and technical education programs at Tift County High School, Eighth Street Middle School, and Northeast Middle School. These programs are designed to prepare youth for a broad range of employment and further education and are offered under the guidance of certified teachers.

All career and technical education programs follow the system’s policies of nondiscrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, and disability in all programs, services, activities, and employment. In addition, arrangements can be made to ensure that the lack of English language proficiency is not a barrier to participation.

Career Clusters

Georgia’s Career Clusters allow students to choose an area of interest in high school. Students take classes tailored to their cluster, which helps them navigate their way to greater success – no matter what they choose to do after high school graduation. The aim of the program is to show students the relevance of what they’re learning in the classroom, whether they want to attend a two-year college, a four-year university or go straight into the world of work. Georgia’s initiative is based on the National Career Cluster Model.
