List of high schools in Kentucky

This is a list of high schools in the state of Kentucky.

If a school's mailing address differs from its physical location, the postal location is in parentheses.

Also, if necessary, the schools are split into public and private, and also by district. Note that Kentucky has two types of public school districts: county districts, styled "XXXX County (Public) Schools" or in some cases "XXXX County School District"; and independent districts, which have varying styles with the common element of not including the word "County". Unless specified, public schools are affiliated with their associated county district.

Fort Campbell High School is located in the Tennessee portion of the Fort Campbell Army base, but has always competed against Kentucky schools. Most of the base housing is in Kentucky, and the high school was once located on the Kentucky side of the base. Like Fort Knox High School, it is administered by the Kentucky District of DoDEA America (the portion of the Department of Defense Education Activity that operates schools within the U.S.).
