Raising the bar for STEM education
Barrow Career Academy
Barrow County School System
- Design Services
The Barrow Career Academy, also known as the Sims Academy of Innovation and Technology, is designed as part of a larger educational campus and directly adjacent to the new Lanier Technical College. It is one of 33 College & Career Academies in Georgia. The Sims Academy focuses on developing the technical abilities of students so they are prepared to enter the workforce with confidence and practical knowledge of in-demand jobs.
The building is designed in two wings. With this strategic design, the STEM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Math) wing is closed off from the general classrooms and administrative wing to facilitate after hour programs that benefit the community.
