Rockcastle County Public Schools have consistently ranked very high in academic performance among Kentucky school systems. Rockcastle County Schools develop students who have the knowledge and basic life skills to lead productive, fulfilling lives. The district has been influenced by its participation with Effective Schools, The Southern Regional Education Board, The National Alliance for Restructuring Education, The Appalachian Rural Systemic Initiative, and The Kentucky Leadership Academy. We have aggressively pursued academic partnerships with institutions of higher education including Berea College, Eastern Kentucky University, Somerset Community College, and The University of Kentucky.
Rockcastle public schools create a safe and positive educational environment that requires a well-defined curriculum, appropriate facilities, and a total commitment from school personnel, students, parents, and the community.
