About GCHS

Grant County High School is a multi-million dollar facility dedicated in 1998, which sits on fifty-one acres of land in Dry Ridge, Kentucky. It is centrally located for all county residents and is the hub of school and community activities. GCHS is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and has a tradition of offering quality academic, fine arts, and vocational programs. Teachers, administrators, and staff work together to provide a safe, caring, and challenging environment where students' individual learning needs and styles are met to prepare them for future successes.  Students are encouraged to use computers in six computer labs. In the Media Center and two General Computer Labs, the internet is available for research. Computer terminals are available in all classrooms, and state of the art equipment fills the art studios and science labs. Grant County High School staff members are committed to providing a quality education for all students. We believe that success can be achieved through partnerships with staff members, parents, students, and community members.
