Also noted are the percentage of students who come from families that qualify for lunch subsidies (Subs. lunch) and the percentage of graduates who passed at least one college-level test during their high school career, called equity and excellence, (E&E).

Campbell County Receives 8th National Ranking in 4 Years!

Campbell County School District learned this morning that Campbell County High School has received yet another national ranking! CCHS received a Silver ranking from U.S. News and World Report ranking CCHS 17th in the State of Kentucky and 1606 in the nation.  A three-step process determined the Best High Schools. The first two steps ensured that the schools serve all of their students well, using their performance on the math and reading parts of their state proficiency tests as the benchmarks. For those schools that made it past the first two steps, a third step assessed the degree to which schools prepare students for college-level work.

This is the 8th National Ranking for the NKY Campbell County School System in four years! The district is also classified as a Distinguished/Progressing District on Kentucky State Assessments. WAY TO GO CAMELS!

The Governor’s School for the Arts is held at Centre College in Danville, Ky from June 19, 2016- July 9, 2016.  Shelby was one of 33 students selected from across the state for the Vocal Music division. Every summer for the past twenty-nine years, GSA and its faculty of professional artist/educators have guided over two hundred of Kentucky’s finest young artists through three weeks of incredibly intense (and incredibly fun) arts instruction. GSA auditions promising high school sophomores and juniors in nine different arts disciplines: Architecture+Design, Creative Writing, Dance, Drama, Instrumental Music, Musical Theatre, New Media: Still Photography and Film, Visual Art and Vocal Music. For three solid weeks residing on a college campus, the students discover the power of their art and their place as an artist. It’s a thrilling, often life-changing experience, as they meet new friends, explore their creativity, and discover new things about who they are and who they can be in the future.
