Education

Upson County is enthusiastic about education. Serving over 5,000 students with approximately 325 certified teachers and an additional 300 support staff, Thomaston's school system offers a broad instructional program, meeting the needs of all its students, from the gifted, to college prep and vocational/technical students, and those with special needs. The system operates a comprehensive Pre-K through 12th grade program at five schools; three elementary, one middle school, and one high school. All schools are accredited through the Georgia Accrediting Commission.

If you are looking for an alternative to public education, Westwood Christian Academy offers classes from preschool through High School. Westwood Christian Academy offers small classes and a hands-on learning environment. Founded in 1968, Westwood Academy is a private, coeducational school providing quality education for students from three-year-old preschool through 12th grade, and is managed by a highly trained and nurturing staff, who adhere to strict Christian work ethics in all aspects of its education practice.
