Beginning at the K-12 level, our school systems produce outstanding results in creating scholastic launch pads. The majority of North Alabama school systems exceed the state’s average benchmarks in standardized testing.
Technical education is fostered throughout all levels of North Alabama’s educational infrastructure and directly trains high school students who are interested in pursing an industrial career.
Cooperation efforts between educators and industries are evident in the numerous co-op and apprenticeship opportunities throughout the region’s secondary schools. Our secondary vocational programs (listed below) help to sustain successful career paths across a broad range of technical skills and competencies for the corporate sector. Several Project Lead the Way programs are also incorporated into the curricula of local schools.
Fourteen institutions of higher education provide a diverse range of knowledge to future industrial workers to prepare them for a constantly-evolving workplace and a lifetime of professional growth.
