Welcome to the Heartland Technical Academy! The Tech Academy provides career exploration and training to approximately 400 high school juniors and seniors in 15 program areas. We serve students from 15 high schools representing Decatur and the surrounding areas.

Students who experience the Tech Academy have an opportunity to learn specific technical skills as well as proper employment behaviors and positive work ethic characteristics. Students at the Tech Academy have access to a technology-enriched curriculum, taught by a highly competent staff, using state of the art equipment. Nearly all of our programs offer college credit through Richland Community College.

Heartland Technical Academy is dedicated to providing quality, hands-on educational experiences that build technical skills and instill work ethics that prepare students for college and career success. The administration and staff of the Tech Academy are committed to providing ways for students to transition successfully into education and career opportunities after high school. To meet this commitment we will:

  • Create challenging, dynamic programs of study that will bring the classroom, workplace, and community together for the benefit of the students.
  • Provide relevant curriculum and appropriate resources to meet the needs of our diverse student population.
  • Continuously improve teaching and technology, while creating partnerships to benefit students.

Prospective students and guests are encouraged to browse this web site and feel free to contact us for a guided tour. Thank you for visiting us and we look forward to serving you.  For more information on what we have to offer, please contact us at 217-872-4051.
