Campbell County High School opened in the fall of 1975, combining the former Jacksboro and LaFollette High Schools into a comprehensive high school built to serve a larger geographic area and a more diverse segment of the county’s youth in grades 10-12. The high school was accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools the following year.  In 1983, Campbell County High School became a 9-12 high school. Three teachers were accepted into the Governor's Academy for Teachers in 1987 and two were Selected as Stokey Fellows. In 1988, a member of  the CCHS faculty was selected as Tennessee High School Teacher of  the Year. The Governor’s A+ Award for community commitment to excellence in education was presented to Campbell County in 1994. In 1994 Campbell County was one of Tennessee’s pilot schools that initiated the block schedule (four period day).  In 1996 the school became a “High School That Works” site through the Southern Region Education Board.  Students are able to gain work experience through industrial cooperative training and internships.  A grant through the Tennessee Department of Education in 1996 enabled the school to incorporate a Ford Academy of Manufacturing Sciences within the school curriculum. 


A diversified, comprehensive educational program offers 172 sections of vocational/technical classes and 319 sections of academic classes. Through an agreement with the TN Technology Center, seniors may attend vocational/technical classes in drafting, machine shop, and business systems technology while in attendance at our school. Students may also articulate high school credit in vocational/technical courses. Qualified students may also be admitted to early admissions programs at Roane State Community College or complete two semesters of college English on our campus during the regular school day.
