Welcome to Jessamine County Schools!

Our Mission

Jessamine County Schools exists to motivate and challenge every child every day to be a caring, responsible citizen, and a high-level thinker, performer, communicator, and learner for life.

 


Great by Choice:  What Sets Us Apart

Located in the heart of central Kentucky, our district is one of the fastest growing school systems in the state. We currently serve more than 8,000 students in preschool through 12th grade and are growing by an average of 100 students per year.  Our school system includes one Early Learning Village (preK-K), six elementary schools (1st-5th), two middle schools, two high schools, a career and technology center, and The Providence School, a statewide award-winning alternative environment for middle school and high school students.

We strive to provide a positive, safe learning environment that is tailored to meet the needs of each child individually. Our goal is to prepare our students to be life ready.
