Hamilton Career Technology Center

Our Workforce Development Campus is an innovative pairing of education and industry. Located within the Oconee Industry and Technology Park, this campus is home to Tri-County Technical College as well as the Hamilton Career Center, the future high school-level vocational school (open fall, 2020).
