    Welcome to the Currituck County School District, located on the coast of beautiful North Carolina.  Currituck is the most northeastern county in North Carolina just south of Chesapeake, Virginia and just north of Kill Devil Hills.  Currituck is home to some of the most beautiful scenery and sport hunting and fishing areas in the state. In addition, Currituck hosts expansive farm land, some of the region's best farmer's markets, Corolla, and the Currituck Lighthouse.
    The Currituck County School System serves approximately 4100 students in ten schools. This includes six elementary schools, two middle schools, an Early College High School and a traditional comprehensive high school. Currituck County Schools boast beautiful school facilities with the technology and equipment to ensure that our educators can prepare our students for the 21st Century and beyond. Currituck County Schools is led by a five member Board of Education who are dedicated to the very best education for each and every student.

    Due to the inconsistent school schedule caused by the inclement weather, the Currituck County School District will be adjusting its semester schedules.  We will be adding 3 instructional days to the 1st semester for all schools K-12, except JP Knapp Early College, due to its unique schedule. The 1st semester will now end on January 31st for the rest of our schools.  At CCHS, exams will begin on Thursday (1/25) and end on Wednesday (1/31).  The second semester will begin on February 1st.  Please check the webpage or Facebook page for your child's school for additional information regarding this schedule change/exam change

  • Inclement Weather Make-Up Time Survey

    In the event Currituck County Schools encounters additional inclement weather in which we have to close school we may need to look to the following options to make up instructional hours. Please provide us with your feedback about which option you prefer. Using Saturday as a school day is another option, but we are trying to avoid that option. Both CCHS and JP Knapp will turn Early Release Fridays into full days to add instructional hours if needed. The recommendations provided below are for all elementary and middle schools only.
