Okefenokee Technical College is situated in the southeastern rural area of Georgia, with two campuses in the towns of Alma and Waycross. The school was conceived in 1962 following a successful local referendum initiative that set up the Waycross-Ware County Area Vocational Technical School, with the original Waycross campus being established in 1965 and the second Alma campus coming along later in 1998. Okefenokee Technical College is part of Georgia’s Technical College System along with 27 other colleges.
At Okefenokee Technical College , students pursue studies for their diploma, certificate or associate degree programs in a fairly wide variety of subject areas, from business to medicine and health programs to much more. The school is known for its exceptional natural surroundings, and indeed there is the heavily frequented and coveted Laura Walker State Park only a few moments’ drive away.
