Community

Nestled in the foothills of the beautiful Appalachian Mountains you will find Jasper, Georgia, known as the first mountain city. Pickens County School District is the only public-school system within the county and consists of six schools – three elementary, one middle, one junior high, and one high school.

We are proud to educate just over 4,300 children within our community through two learning models – traditional school or Pickens Virtual Academy.  Pickens Virtual Academy was developed based on input from the families we serve.  During this uncertain time with COVID-19, we felt it was important to offer families an option to learn from home through an internet-based platform.

For more information about our individual schools, please visit our schools' page
