Our commitment to building the best, most proficient workforce and keeping the best minds at home is evident in the number of quality education programs, services and resources we have in Walker County. We start young and finish strong when it comes to education – and that helps you and your business reach the next level and beyond. 

From pioneering Pre-K programs that give students a solid foundation to innovative continuing education programs that allow your quest for knowledge to be a lifelong pursuit, Georgia has earned national recognition for establishing high academic standards that offer students the resources they need to realize their dreams.


Additionally, Georgia’s HOPE scholarship program makes saving for college a lot easier. Most of the freshmen from Georgia attending our state’s colleges and universities are not paying tuition thanks to the HOPE scholarship. Financed by the state lottery, HOPE has awarded $3.5 billion and assisted more than one million students since 1993.

By giving you one-stop access to the education programs, new initiatives, online resources, research and other innovative education programs, Georgia is setting a new standard and helping employers take an active role in generating the supply of talent they need to dream big and succeed.
