The Fort Knox Community Schools system is a part of the Kentucky District, one of five districts in the Department of Defense Domestic Dependent Elementary and Secondary Schools. DDESS is a division of the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA), serving children of military families around the globe. The mission of the Fort Knox Community Schools is to educate, engage, and empower each student to succeed in a dynamic world. Two elementary schools, one middle school and the local high school are located on the installation. There are two other counties in the immediate area where you may reside. These are Meade and Hardin Counties. Children should register in the county of residence. There are several private schools in the county offering a wide variety of programs. The Kentucky Department of Education publishes a list of state approved private non-church affiliated nursery, kindergarten, child care centers, elementary and secondary schools. The Fort Knox Home School Group meets during the regular public school calendar year. This program is open to all home schooled Child and Youth Services (CYS) registered members ages 6-18. For those not living near an installation, contact your state's department of education for information on local schools. Currently Most Schools in Kentucky are bouncing between in person and online learning due to the COVID-19 situation.
