Green River College & Career Academy

After months of construction, Green River College and Career Academy opened in August 2019 to students at Hart County and Caverna High Schools. The new school was developed through a strong partnership between the two high schools, local government, area businesses and agencies and postsecondary institutions.

The new facility, designed by Sherman Carter Barnhart, focuses on flexible and adaptable spaces for cross-disciplinary collaboration, as well as presentation/demonstration classrooms to be used by industry professionals and postsecondary institutions to teach and train students providing specialized training. The Academy can meet the current training needs of many of the region’s job sectors while also having the capability to grow and expand to meet the future needs of the region’s workforce.

The Academy currently offers three pathways at the Munfordville facility: Transportation/Logistics, Business Support and Health Sciences. An Industrial Maintenance Program is available at Caverna High School. Many additional opportunities will come in 2020 with night classes for adults being planned in diesel mechanic, CNA certification and more.

Hart County School District

The Hart County School system is committed to recognizing and developing the academic, social, and personal talents of over 2,400 students. Its mission is for each student to achieve or exceed the district-wide expectations in all areas of the curriculum while developing self-sufficient behaviors and interpersonal skills. Local students benefit from the talents of devoted classroom teachers, skilled administrators, updated technology and facilities, and a dedicated board of education.

The Hart County School district consists of five elementary schools – serving grades Preschool – 8 and one high school serving grades 9 – 12. Extensive renovations have been made in recent years to the elementary schools in Cub Run, Bonnieville, LeGrande, and Memorial, and a new elementary school was completed for Munfordville in 2007. A new high school is currently being constructed and the facility should open by the end of 2018.

Focus on Student Achievement
Identified by the Kentucky School Board Association for being among the top 20% of districts across the state as measured by CATS improvement, Hart County students and staff demonstrate a consistent dedication to student achievement. In fact, Hart County Schools’ assessment results marked the second-highest performance gain in the state in 2005.

Gifted & Talented Student Services
In addition to state funding, the board of education has made a major and ongoing commitment to fund three full-time positions to support gifted and talented instruction.

Individualized Instruction
The district also provides access to two research-based assessments periodically throughout the year so that teachers can pinpoint both the strengths and challenges of the students they teach. In addition to enabling teachers to teach to the needs of students, these assessmentss also provide resource materials to specifically address learning needs.

Learning Intervention Programs
All five elementary schools have a Reading Recovery Program. The program’s main goal is to provide one-on-one intervention to struggling first grade students so that upon exiting the program, they read at least on the average level of their same-age peers. Reading Recovery is an essential component of the district’s mission that all students read on grade level as they exit the primary program.

State of the Art Library Media Centers
All K-8 libraries offer laptops for student/parent checkout, updated collections, a library clerk to assist students, parents and teachers, and extended libary hours. Moreover, all libraries offer, or will soon offer, wireless internet access.

Technology for Learning
The Hart County Board of Education launched an unprecedented technology initiative in the summer of 2005. Every regular classroom, library media center, and several other instructional areas now have a dedicated multi-media learning system, including a Promethean ACTIVBoard, Classroom Performance Learning System, interactive slate, Dukane document camera, DVD/VCR unit, and integrated sound and projection.
