A Bold New Vision
The new Morgan County High School and Career Academy is the result of a bold vision by district leadership to create a new school with a central focus on college and career pathways. In a journey that began with the idea of a renovated high school facility and new career academy transformed through much planning and community input into an ambitious program that delivers both into one facility.
The 42 instructional unit includes 28 classrooms; five science labs; a media center; gymnasium; band, choral, and art departments; F]family-living suite; and JROTC Suite. The two-story academy wing includes specific spaces for programs in healthcare, culinary arts, horticulture, ag mechanics, engineering, biotech science, business, cosmetology, and marketing. Also included in the design is a 500-seat auditorium.
The building’s plan features separate drop-off entrances for buses and parents as well as a third entry for the career academy program. The new facility, which is adjacent to and connects to the existing ninth grade academy, is situated directly across from the pre-existing stadium.
