Chris Kennedy, Ed.D.
  • I am so excited to be the Career and Technical Director for Houston County Schools and the Houston County Career Academy! I am humbled by the opportunity to work with such a talented group of faculty, staff and students as we maintain the stellar reputation of HCCA. 

    On behalf of everyone at the Houston County Career Academy (HCCA) we welcome every student from all five high schools that we serve. Students, parents, industry partners, and community members are always welcome to call or visit to learn more about the opportunities career and technical education (CTE) has to offer the students of Houston County Schools.

    HCCA houses dynamic CTE programs to prepare students for success. Students will complete HCCA college and career ready! The academic and technical skills learned through our CTE programs will ensure students leave HCCA prepared to succeed.  Students will also learn workplace and personal soft skills to enable them to reach their full potential. This is accomplished through an emphasis in career and technical student organizations including, FBLA, FCCLA, FFA, HOSA, NJROTC, SKILLSUSA and TSA.

     Whether through a formal mentoring program or by placing students in job shadowing or internship opportunities, CTE links students to the community using work-based learning opportunities in ways that many other high school programs cannot.

    For more information about the exciting opportunities at HCCA please give us a call or just stop by.
