About HCCA

The Houston County Career and Technical Center was established in 1977 in Ashford, AL.  It was created to develop the talents and skills of students in classroom settings that are rigorous, progressive, and certified to international standards, and allows students the opportunity to explore career options and earn advanced diplomas, industry certifications, and college credit.

In October of 2016, the CTC was renamed the Houston County Career Academy and officially moved from Ashford into the old Sears retail building (now completely renovated from floor to ceiling) in downtown Dothan, a more central location to better serve all Houston County Schools. This larger facility allows our teachers more room to operate their classrooms and have set "instruction" and "practice" spaces, and also allows for future growth and enrollment.

We are pleased to be able to offer a myriad of career technical programs for our students, as well as several dual enrollment classes. Whether a student chooses to go to college, trade school, or into the workforce after high school, we are confident that they will be successful. After all, "you can go anywhere from here."


All Students College & Career Ready
