The LaRue County School District has been selected as one of four “Diamonds in the Rough” districts in Kentucky by The Bluegrass Institute for Public Policy Solutions for LaRue’s notably above-average academic performance versus per pupil funding despite the district’s student poverty rate.
Campbellsville University’s has remained in the top regional universities in the South, according to the U.S. News & World Report rankings.
The University is listed also in the Chronicle of Higher Education as being among the nation’s fastest growing campuses. It is the 16th fastest growing educational institution in the United States from 2000 to 2010.

Providing the best academic instruction and tools is vital if a school wants to prepare students for their best opportunities for success after graduation.
Important as these things are, however, there’s more to success than academics.
