Ford Next Generation Learning
In August 2017, Vicksburg / Warren County was named a Ford Next Generation Learning Community. This designation was awarded not to the school district alone, but to the community as a whole. Through a partnership with Ford Next Generation Learning, the Vicksburg Warren Chamber of Commerce and the Vicksburg Warren School District are working to better align students' skills to existing workforce needs.
Students are the center of everything we do and the Academies are designed to ignite our students’ passion for lifelong learning and to provide an interesting, relevant and meaningful education.
This approach provides the advanced academic and 21st century skills - such as working together in teams, problems solving, valuing diverse opinions, and communication skills - that employers are looking for and that our students need to be successful. VWCCA does this by offering applied learning opportunities through career-themed learning communities. You can learn more about the VWCCA by watching the videos on this page.
