The Liberty County School System (LCSS) serves 10,200 students and operates one state-funded preschool, seven elementary schools, three middle schools, two high schools and a public-charter career academy that offers hands-on technical training. In addition, a private K-12 academy in Hinesville serves about 300 students, and the Department of Defense operates three schools for 2,000 children in PreK-6 who reside on Fort Stewart. Liberty County's public middle and high schools serve the post's older students.



Liberty College & Career Academy supports industry growth

Liberty County School System studentThe Liberty College & Career Academy (LCCA) opened in August 2012 at a 50,000-square-foot state of the art facility, and its mission is to prepare tomorrow's technical workforce through hands-on experiences in more than 10 career pathways. Classes are available to students grade 10 and higher, and classes teach soft skills, business structures and skills for such pathways as welding, manufacturing, engineering and aircraft support.

The LCCA is an asset to area employers as it provides an opportunity for industries to engage their future workforce, and industries have the opportunity to team with the academy to guide pathway development and classroom curriculum.

LCSS shines in classroom technology adaptation

The Liberty County School System (LCSS) also is a known leader for its digital advances within classrooms. In 2010, the National School Boards Association recognized the district as one of three for excellence in technology. Connectivity devices are available for students of all ages.

Middle school math and science classes have iPads available for interactive instruction and application thanks to a $1.35 million Department of Defense Education Activity grant. In 2012, three high school classes introduced digital course materials -- which can be tailored to each student's needs and may be updated to reflect advances in science and technology -- in place of textbooks. At the elementary level, all classrooms are outfitted with interactive Smartboards, and students have access to a variety of tech gadgets, such as iPods and tablets, through pilot programs.
