Bath County High School is located in the heart of Kentucky’s Eastern Coal Fields region. Poverty and unemployment have gripped this area of Kentucky, where families have farmed for generations. Today, small farms provide sustenance for many families, but little profit. Additionally, the county only has four major employers, including the Bath County School System, which provide very few jobs. Over 40 percent of the adult population is unable to attain many of these jobs because they never completed high school and have no higher education credentials.

For these reasons, Bath County High School plays a major role in helping its students break the cycle of poverty that engulfs their county by offering them a well-rounded education and the confidence that they need to become successful members of their community.
