• School Closings/Delays:

    Dear Troup County School System Community, 

    Governor Brian Kemp just issued an Executive Order mandating all schools in Georgia will remain closed for in-person instruction for the remainder of the school year. This includes TCSS.

    Please note that current grade calculations will be based upon student mastery of material covered through March 12, 2020 which was the end of the third nine weeks grading period. Student learning will continue after our scheduled Spring Break. We don’t want our kids to lose the valuable knowledge and skills they have gained this school year. Teachers will be contacting their students and working with them to ensure additional opportunities are available for students to demonstrate mastery of previously covered material. More details will be available the week of April 13th.

    At this time, we do not have any further updates. We know there are academic milestones and other events that our students and families were looking forward to this year. As updates are available, we will share them. 

    Over the past several weeks, our commitment to the students and the families of TCSS has been paramount. We will continue this commitment through the closure. Together, we will all get through this.

    Thank you,

Close alert

Welcome back to THINC College & Career Academy! As we begin our fourth year of operation, I can’t help but reflect on the great things over the summer that have set the momentum for the coming year.

We had students from THINC DECA participate in the International Career Development Conference and students from THINC HOSA participated in the International Leadership Conference, both in Orlando, Florida.

THINC hosted its third annual SLAM Robotics Camp (Students Learning About Manufacturing). SLAM was sponsored by a few of our industry partners; Duracell, Milliken, KIA, Mando, and TrackMobile. During the week-long camp students visited each of the industry locations to learn about modern-day manufacturing and how different it is from the “mills” our parents and grandparents worked in not so long ago.  Students also spent time under the tutelage of THINC’s Robotics Instructors where they were able to build their own robot and compete with each other at the end of the week.

Thank you to all of our students, parents, business and industry partners, and other stakeholders for continuing to help THINC grow and improve. Without all of you, this would not be possible!

          Please join us at our Welcome Back Rally for our students on Tuesday, August 27th at 8:00am and 12:45pm.
