Post- high school education is easily within reach of Treutlen County residents with several technical colleges, university system programs, and private colleges in driving distance.  Southeastern Technical College is located in Vidalia with Oconee Fall Line in Dublin; four university system campuses are near the county with East Georgia College in Swainsboro, a campus of Middle Georgia State College, Georgia Southern University, and Georgia Southwestern University in Dublin; and private schools, Brewton-Parker College in Mt.Vernon and Troy University with offices in Dublin and Vidalia.

The June 2013 Area Labor Profile shows that 82% of the employees in Treutlen County, reside in the county and of the residents, just over 40% commute to neighboring communities to work.  Almost 20% each travel to the micropolitan areas of Toombs and Laurens counties.

Over 40% of the population holds only a high school diploma while nearly 35% holds some college up to professional level training.  A steady increase in education level attained by the younger population shows the school’s persistence in training while focusing on student-centered curriculum.
