GeorgiaBEST Middle School is designed to introduce students to the soft skills needed to be successful in the classroom and in the workplace, and is aligned with standards addressed in the GeorgiaBEST high school program. However, it also stresses career exploration and goes hand-in-hand with the State Department of Education’s career pathways, which requires students to choose a pathway of study prior to entering high school.

This certification will serve as validation to teachers and future employers that these students have successfully displayed strong work habits that will foster success in higher education and in the workplace, and have an understanding of the different career pathways of study. This will also help prepare students for the transition to high school.
