By providing strong academic foundations in our Barren County schools, students can find opportunities in over 40 career pathways to become successful in the new economy. With the goal of preparing our students for the future, we have worked to create a Profile of a Trojan, which is an outline for what industry is looking for in future employees and the core values BC Schools hope to instill in all students and staff.
From pre-school to post-secondary, we seek to provide an experience for our students that equips to be the leaders of our future. While we will always maintain an emphasis on academic success, we are also placing an emphasis on teaching skills that will promote lifetime success for our students.
