Columbia County Board of Education

As the Columbia County school system continues to grow, so does its infrastructure.

The school system opened its fifth high school, Grovetown High School, in August of 2009. The $40 million facility is located near the corner of Chamblin and Baker Place roads and eased overcrowding at Greenbrier High School. The 86-classroom campus is spread across more than 70 acres.

Stallings Island Middle School opened in 2008 on Blackstone Camp Road. The school was named for nearby Stallings Island, which is located in the Savannah River about eight miles from Augusta.
