About Us
Fern Creek is dedicated to providing students with a variety of learning opportunities, including a diverse range of Career Pathways.
We offer a range of rigorous coursework including Advanced and AP options. The 2019-2020 schedule has 14 different AP course options instructed by our highly-trained and certified AP teachers.

  • Students can recover, remediate, or enrich learning opportunities after school each Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  Our highly-qualified teachers  commit to serving our students after the traditional school day has ended to meet their individual needs.
  • Our IVY Plus program is geared towards exceptionally high-achieving students to connect them to colleges and universities that are nationally recognized top post-secondary institutions.  Students are mentored starting in 9th grade and parents are familiarized with their options for selecting from these elite institutions.
  • Fern Creek has a highly active alumni association that has contributed over five million dollars in support to the school.
  • We have more than 70 different activities, sports, and clubs from which our students can choose.

At Fern Creek High School we are committed to maintaining the instructional integrity established by our predecessors.  Founded in 1923 as the first public high school in Jefferson County, Fern Creek has served as a community meeting place, a hub of learning and a touchstone for generations of Louisville residents.  We are proud of our history and dedicated to moving our school forward.
