Our Story

     George Rogers Clark High School is a thriving high school in the heart of the Bluegrass that achieved the coveted state School of Distinction in back-to-back years. 


     As the only public high school in Clark County, Kentucky, GRCHS has an annual enrollment in grades 9-12 of between 1,500 and 1,600 students.

     The school opened in the fall of 1963 at 620 Boone Avenue with the consolidation of Clark County High School and Winchester High School.

     In 2013, the school moved to its current location on Boonesboro Road. Our facility includes a beautiful enclosed courtyard, a state-of-the-art area technology center, a 600-seat auditorium, and a sprawling media center. The campus includes one of Kentucky's premiere high school athletic complexes.

     GRCHS is placing priority emphasis on college and career readiness, and providing more opportunities for students each year in the academic, arts and vocational realms.


     Blended-learning classrooms, creative scheduling, and project-based learning are a sampling of the 21st century strategies used to enhance education.

     GRC is a school of innovation and ingenuity that boasts several visionary approaches to education, some of which have broken ground in our part of the state. These include our EKU Now and dual-credit programs, our Educational Tracks, our Fine Arts Cohort, our Student Leadership Challenge, and our diverse platform of career-oriented and high-interest course offerings.
