    • Columbus Career and College Academy March 28, 2011
    • Overview• Eighth grade students who choose CCCA will be able to select a pathway from the following: College Transfer, Culinary Arts, Communications & Broadcasting, Metal Machining, Green Construction, and Interior Design.• Additional pathways such as Cosmetology, Game Design, Turf Management and others may be offered in the future, if the student interest is there and funds are available.• The Academy will open in August 2011 with approximately 100 freshmen.• Construction and renovations are on schedule for completion by June 30, 2011.
    • Personnel• Mrs. Laura Davis, Principal of SEC has been named principal of CCCA.• A Career Development Counselor will be located at the Fair Bluff Campus.• A Program Director will remain at the SCC Campus.• Six Teachers will be located on the Fair Bluff Campus in year one.• A School Resource Officer will be assigned to the Fair Bluff Campus.• Funding is provided by New School’s Project, Golden Leaf Foundation, state and local allocations.
    • Communication TechnologyThis program of study will prepare students to work in broadcasting, for which there is no licensure required and each company can decide their own requirements for employment. Experience gained from job shadowing and internship will be extremely important.CCCA will have an on-campus FM radio station reaching 100,000 people in southeastern NC and northeastern SC. Students will run and manage this station and will also learn to use TV and the internet to reach mass markets.Currently, broadcasting is a growth industry and offers a variety of career such as producers, technicians, photographers, editors, account representatives, advertising copy writers, music directors, programmers, advertising copy producers, traffic managers, on-air personalities and directors.Six community colleges in NC offer certificates or degrees in broadcasting.
    • Communication TechnologyCourses specific to this cluster are: Speech I, Broadcast Journalism, Programming and Broadcasting I, II, and III, Digital Communication, Digital Media, and Career Management.Twenty three high school credits will be required for graduation including the above cluster courses, freshman seminar, 4 English courses, 4 math courses, 3 science courses, 3 social studies courses, and PE.In addition, all students must complete job shadowing yearly, an internship, and a graduation project that is a culmination of the student’s learning over four years in the cluster.Because students will be under the umbrella of Early College, they will have the ability to take a wider range of college courses for free and may finish CCCA with a college certificate.

They achieve 7 credits peryear if successful.Graduation requirement for the FBCTA side will be 22 high school credits plus grad project and job shadowing/coop hours.If foreign language is desired it could be taken through VPS online in the 12th grade.
    • Metal Machining TechnologyMachinists, welders, and tool and die makers are employed in virtually every area of manufacturing including heavy or large machinery, aerospace, automobiles, shipbuilding and parts manufacturing. In addition, tool and die makers are often employed by specialty manufacturing firms that build the equipment that other industries use in factories. Welders work in many areas other than manufacturing, ranging from construction to auto repair.CCCA will prepare students to work in machining with the latest high-tech CNCs, routers, and lathes thanks to a generous grant by the Golden Leaf Foundation. It will also provide a trained workforce in Columbus County which may prove effective in attracting future industry.Because on-the-job experience is so crucial, we will work diligently to find partners in the local area to provide internships and job shadowing.
    • Metal Machining TechnologyLocally, Cape Fear Community College offers certificates and degrees in this area. Robeson Community College is scheduled to start a program next year. We hope to partner with them to offer college-level courses on the Fair Bluff Campus. Lenoir CC and Richmond CC also offer programs.Courses in this pathway include Intro. to Trade and Industry, Drafting I and II, Metals Manufacturing I and II, Welding, and Career Management.Twenty three high school credits will be required for graduation including those above, freshman seminar, 4 English courses, 4 math courses, 3 science courses, 3 social studies courses, and PE. In addition, all students must complete job shadowing yearly, an internship, and a graduation project that is a culmination of the student’s learning over four years in the cluster.

    • Culinary TechnologyCulinary arts is the study of the art of cooking and baking and will lead to a career in the restaurant or food industry. Some career options are restaurant owner, caterer, chef, cook, restaurant manager, teacher, food critic, food photographer, writer and food stylist.Cape Fear Community College currently offers a certificate and a degree in this field. Other nearby options for further education include The Art Institute in Charlotte or Raleigh, and Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte.Job outlook in this area is expected to be very good through 2018 according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook.CCCA will feature a restaurant where students will learn to prepare and serve food to real customers.As with the other four pathways, core academic courses, job shadowing, and graduation project will be required.

    • Interior Design TechnologyThis program of study prepares students to work in interior design in either residential or commercial settings. Many positions in interior design will require either a two-year or four-year college degree, but there is no licensure required in either NC or SC and each company can decide their own requirements for employment.Experience gained from job shadowing and internship will be extremely important since working up through the ranks is the typical career path.CCCA will prepare students for a future in this industry by teaching necessary skills such as how to identify and plan for form, function, and feel of a space, how to identify and create various interior design styles, how to put together marketing presentations, and how to do basic architectural drafting and computer-aided design.
    • Interior Design TechnologyIn addition to The Art Institute in Raleigh and Charlotte, there are several community colleges in NC that offer diplomas, degrees, and certificates in interior design, one of which, Halifax Community College, offers their program entirely online and will hopefully work with CCCA to allow students to enter their college program while still in high school.Teen Living, Housing and Interiors I and II, Drafting I and II, Career Management, and Advanced Studies in Interior Design are courses in this cluster.Twenty three high school credits will be required for graduation including those above, freshman seminar, 4 English courses, 4 math courses, 3 science courses, 3 social studies courses, and PE. In addition, all students must complete job shadowing yearly, an internship, and a graduation project that is a culmination of the student’s learning over four years in the cluster.
