Yearbooks –  NCHS Cardinal Yearbooks are in! You can pick them up in the office anytime during the day. A limited number of 2014 books will be available on a first come, first serve basis for the price of $65.00. We will also be selling previous years’ yearbooks at a drastically reduced rate, many as low as $15.00. It’s while supplies last, so don’t wait.

Nelson County High School is a fully accredited, comprehensive high school that has striven to provide every student with a quality education since its opening in 1969. Our success can be attributed to the continuing commitment of staff, students, parents and community to work toward a common goal of academic excellence for every student. As the world moves forward in the 21st century, Nelson County High School endeavors to make sure that every student is prepared for success in an ever-changing, diverse, complex society.

Our students are encouraged to enroll in college credit classes, dual credit classes, Advanced Placement classes, cooperative education programs, and vocational classes at the Area Technology Center.  We work hard to provide quality instruction for all students regardless of their educational needs. Our  faculty and staff are committed to alleviating any barriers which might restrict the individual success of any student. Our students and staff members attempt daily to live up to the NCHS motto of All A’s: Attitude, Ambition, Achievement.
