Founded in 1963, Whitley County High School was born through the merger of four older county high schools.  Nestled on a beautiful 173 acre tract of land in southern Whitley County, the campus is home to a newly renovated, state of the art main building and the addition of a brand new 20,000 square foot freshman academy.  This school serves the students of Southeastern Kentucky with a quality college preparatory education as well as providing opportunities for those students wishing to pursue technical, vocational, and/or military training.  The facilities not only serve the students but are extensively used by the community.  The campus boasts a walking track, outdoor classroom/nature/fitness trail, amphitheater, football, softball, and baseball fields, six tennis courts and a sand volleyball court. Whitley County High School observes a traditional six-period day and takes pride in offering a challenging curriculum which includes Advanced Placement, Honors and Dual Credit Courses.  WCHS has 78 full-time teachers, 3 guidance counselors, 2 community counselors, 2 librarians, a youth service center coordinator and a school resource officer.  Average class size is 24.  Current student population is 1156; the senior class number is 233.
