Congratulations to the Lady Saints Basketball Team - Region Champions
The faculty, staff, and administration would like to thank you for your support during the 2015-2016 school year. Calhoun County High School received several accolades this school year because of teamwork and our collaboration with you and the community. We are proud to say that Calhoun
County High School received the bronze award “America’s Best High Schools” by US News & World Report for a ninth time. The high school also received the Palmetto Gold Award from the State Department of Education for closing the achievement gap. Our boys’ varsity basketball team won the State championship for Class A and the varsity football and girls basketball team both were region champs. This year was a wonderful example of “Offering the Total Package.”
As we prepare for next school year, we solicit your continued support in educating your child. Our mission is to empower all students to compete and succeed in an ever-changing global society.
Empower. Compete. Succeed.
As you and your child prepare for the summer months, please ensure that he/she continues to read
Empower 3000 articles or books. The summer reading activity offers 10 bonus points on an English
quiz or test score in the first nine weeks. Our ultimate goal is for all students to be college and career
Our summer operation hours will be 8:00AM-4:00PM, Monday through Thursday and closed on Fridays.
Have a great summer!

Calhoun County High School received the U.S. News & World Report Best High Schools’ Bronze Award for the ninth consecutive year.
To produce the 2015 U.S. News & World Report Best High Schools rankings, U.S. News teamed up with the Washington, D.C.-based American Institutes for Research (AIR), one of the largest behavioral and social science research organizations in the world. U.S. News & World Report analyzed 21,035 public high schools in 49 states and the District of Columbia. A three-step process determined the Best High Schools. The first two steps ensured that the schools serve all of their students well, using performance on state proficiency tests as the benchmarks. For those schools that made it past the first two steps, a third step assessed the degree to which schools prepare students for college-level work.
This honor is a result of collective efforts and teamwork among dedicated teachers, focused students, and supportive parents.
