Our Story
George Rogers Clark High School is a thriving high school in the heart of the Bluegrass that has achieved the coveted state School of Distinction for 2015 and 2016. As the only public high school in Clark County, Kentucky, GRCHS has an annual enrollment in grades 9-12 of between 1,600 and 1,700 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.

The new facility, which includes a beautiful enclosed courtyard, a state-of-the-art area technology center, and a 600-seat auditorium, opened in the fall of 2013 on Boonesboro Road.

GRCHS is placing priority emphasis on college and career readiness, providing more opportunities for students each year in the academic, arts and vocational realms. Blended-learning classrooms, innovative scheduling and project-based learning are a sampling of the 21st century strategies used to enhance education. The school has a distinguished record in academics, vocational training, related arts and athletics, and is preparing to break ground on a new gymnasium and athletic complex.

George Rogers Clark surged from a state focus school in 2010 to School of Distinction in 2015 and 2016. Behind the back-to-back distinction rating, which is historic for our district, is a school of innovation and ingenuity that boasts several creative approaches to education that have broken ground in our part of the state

George Rogers Clark High School (1963 – Present) History

Clark County High School (1912 – 1963)

Clark County High was founded in 1912 in collaboration with Kentucky Wesleyan College to provide a high school education for the children in the county. Paradoxically, it was never more than several blocks away from Winchester High School, first located in a building on KWC’s campus before moving to its permanent location on 234 W. Lexington Avenue. The Clark County High Yearbook was named The Cardinal.

Kentucky Wesleyan University (1890-1951)

Kentucky Wesleyan College was started when the Kentucky Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, voted to found a college at Millersburg. Classes began in 1866, after peace was restored following the Civil War, and the first commencement was in 1868. In 1890 they moved to Winchester, where they remained until 1951. Kentucky Wesleyan moved to Owensboro in 1951 and is still there to this day. Their yearbook was called The Porphyrian

Winchester High School (1889-1963)

Winchester High School was created to allow the children of the city of Winchester to continue their education. Originally it was part of the Hickman Street School until the high school was granted their own building on South Burns Avenue (the Library currently sits on the grounds of what once was Winchester High.) Winchester High was closed and merged with Clark County High to form George Rogers Clark High School. Their yearbook was entitled The Shawnee.

George Rogers Clark High School (1963 – Present)

George Rogers Clark High was a merger of both the City and County High Schools. From 1963 until 2013, it was located on 620 Boone Avenue. In 2013, the new George Rogers Clark opened on 2745 Boonesboro Road. Following Clark County High, the yearbook is The Cardinal.
