West Georgia Technical College is one of eight colleges in the nation this year to earn Leader College status, as designated by Achieving the Dream. The achievement is the organization’s highest designation awarded to institutions that have shown three years of steady improvements in outcomes that measure student success.

Among the 2017 student outcomes by the eight Leader Colleges were improvements such as an increase in the three-year graduation rate and increases in the percentages of students who attempted and completed gateway math courses.

Leader Colleges are eligible to compete for all grant-funded learning initiatives and are encouraged to provide leadership and support to other colleges in the ATD Network, disseminate lessons learned, support state and national efforts to advance the student success agenda, and continue to improve student outcomes.

West Georgia Technical College, with campuses in Carroll, Coweta, Douglas, Haralson and Troup counties and class sites in Heard and Meriwether counties, offers more than 120 associate degree, diploma and technical certificate programs of study.
