Fostering the skills you need to succeed
Education is a top priority in Baldwin County and the State of Alabama. With over 30,000 students attending 45 public schools, Baldwin County has consistently outperformed state and national averages in standardized testing, thanks in part to the fact that half of our county’s teachers have earned at least their Master’s degree. In additional to excellent public schools, we have several premiere private and parochial schools, as well as two top-notch career/tech centers.
Our area colleges, universities, and community colleges offer courses in industrial maintenance, welding, automotive technology, computer science, drafting, machining, tooling, A&P mechanics, and much more.
