Education

Morgan County is served by three public school systems: Decatur City, Hartselle City and Morgan County Schools. These systems meet the educational needs of area students and take pride in challenging them to excel in all they do. The area is also served by several private and parochial schools, giving families many choices for education. Local schools provide opportunities for all students to experience success and to be prepared for future education, the world of work, and achieving lifelong skills.

Also in the Decatur-annexed portion of neighboring Limestone County is Calhoun Community College – the largest of 27 members in the Alabama Community College System. The college serves more than 11,300 students and offers 49 associate degree programs and 52 career/certificate programs.

The Alabama Center for the Arts is a collaborative effort between the City of Decatur, Morgan County, Calhoun Community College and Athens State University. The state-of-the-art teaching facility for visual media arts – more than 44,000 square feet – is located in the heart of downtown Decatur and serves as a venue for college art instruction, community education, cultural events, and also serves as a catalyst for the region’s creative community building and expression. Phase two of the Alabama Center for the Arts, a 45,000 square foot performing arts facility, will break ground in 2014.
