School History

The Houston County WIN Academy's location has changed over time to accommodate the needs of the district and its students. The latest home of the WIN Academy is the former location of Pearl Stephens Elementary.

The Houston County WIN Academy was known as the Houston County Crossroads Center until 2019.  The Houston County Crossroads Center was an educational center within the Houston County School System that was established in the year 2000. The academy hosts both a middle school (6th-8th) and a high school (9th-12th) program. Previously, the academy was also known as the "Watson Center" and the "Elberta Open Campus High School".  Throughout its history, the academy has worked with students to provide a safe, student-focused learning environment where high expectations and positive relationships are formed. All classes include a rigorous, technologically-enhanced, standards-based curriculum where students strive to reach their educational goals.

All of our staff members have chosen to work here because they understand the importance and obstacles faced by students in today's society and have a yearning to see all students become successful and contributing members of our society.
