We Are Boone County Schools

Boone County Schools

Boone County Schools are committed to ensuring every student is college, career and life ready. As the third largest in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the District consists of 14 elementary schools, five middle schools and four high schools. There are nearly 20,000 students, 1,200 who are English Language Learners, speaking over 50 languages in Boone County Schools.

From achievement in elementary, middle and high school to college and career readiness measures, Boone County Schools are taking bold strides forward in an extended period of state and federal budget cuts and financial pressure. For example, this past school year, graduating seniors placed above the national average on the ACT with a composite score of 21.3. The District also was granted District accreditation from the AdvancED Accreditation Commission, the national commission that confers the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) accreditation seal. This means that the District and all of its schools are accredited, and that Boone County Schools is recognized across the nation as a quality school system.

Boone County is a district that sets high expectations for students and provides a supportive atmosphere that produces student achievement. Schools are focused on academic rigor, real world relevance, and focused relationships with our parents, students, and community. The District is proud to be the home of two Kentucky Teachers of the Year, NEA Support Professional of the Year, National Merit Finalists, AP Scholars, Service Learning Award winners, athletic and academic champions. Accomplishments like these are made possible by a world-class faculty and staff, the leadership of the Boone County Board of Education, parents, community members and the intrinsic drive of their students.

This district takes great pride in their mission of Achieving Excellence Together. With a rich history of high achievements, quality teaching and efficient operations, Boone County Schools are helping to prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s world.
