Through a successful eSPLOST, the Wayne County School System has built two new schools, renovated three schools and completed two schools.
The Wayne County Chamber supports the Wayne County School System through its Partners In Education program. Businesses, civic organizations and individuals are enlisted to partner with individual schools to provide mentoring, mini-grants for innovative projects designed to improve student performance and achievement, scholarships for graduating seniors, attendance incentives, science and social studies fair support, a Teacher of the Year banquet and a Para-Pro Scholarship to assist individuals actively pursuing a teaching career.
Many Wayne County graduating seniors move on to Coastal Pines Technical College, formerly known as Altamaha Tech, which offers more than 80 associate degree, diploma and certificate programs that last for a few months to two years. Coastal Pines Technical College graduates enjoy a 98.6% job placement rate upon completion of their career program.
Students desiring a bachelor’s degree and higher can start at the College of Coastal Georgia in nearby Brunswick, which offers four-year degrees in American studies, biological sciences, mathematics, psychology, business administration, education, nursing and public affairs, and continues to add degree programs as the college grows.
