The mission of the Pike County School System is to provide excellence in education, producing graduates ready for college, careers, and life-long success. The school district believes in using several guiding principles to achieve this goal. Our Guiding Principles are to 1) maintain high expectations and performance standards for all students and adults, 2) ensure academic accountability, fiscal responsibility, and clear communication, 3) initiate and sustain effective collaboration with families, community agencies, and business-industry partners, 4) engage in research to provide innovative instruction, proficient technology use, and expanded student opportunities, and 5) deliver friendly and courteous service in safe, clean, well-maintained schools. 

The school system as well as each school maintains Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Accreditation. Student performance on standardized assessments is competitive with surrounding systems in Southeast Alabama. We encourage you to utilize data provided at the Alabama State Department of Education web-site to review this information. 

The school district offers a full complement of outstanding programs at all levels. These include participation in the Alabama Reading Initiative and Alabama Math, Science, and Technology Initiative. The high school program features several "Academy Options." These include the Global Studies Academy in which students attend Troy University part-time at no expense and earn 24 semester hours of college credit prior to graduation. Other Academy options include the Troy-Pike Business and Finance Academy located at Pike County High School. Senior students in this academy operate an in-school branch of the First National Bank of Brundidge. The Agriscience and Technology Career Academy provides outstanding opportunities for students interested in careers in Agriculture. This program also provides students with the opportunity to participate in equestrian activities. 

Instruction is provided in technology rich environments. The district also participates in ACCESS and provides high school coursework using web-based and interactive video conferencing technology. The school system is well prepared to accommodate the needs of all students including those with disabilities.  

We appreciate your interest in our schools and encourage you to visit our campuses at any time.
