Pendleton County is located midway between Cincinnati, Ohio, and Lexington, Kentucky, in the southeast corner of the metropolitan Cincinnati region of northern Kentucky. The county’s beautiful landscape of woods, rolling hills and river valleys offer spectacular views. With Kincaid Lake State Park, the Ohio River on its northeast border and the Licking River running northward through its entire length, Pendleton County has an abundance of hunting, fishing and boating opportunities. While in a rural location, residents can travel less than 30 minutes north to access a variety of employment opportunities and experience the cultural and educational events of the Greater Cincinnati region.

Established in 1959, the Pendleton County Board of Education has a legacy of commitment to educational leadership, community responsibility, and child advocacy. Today, the school district is striving to build on that legacy as PCS grows to meet new needs throughout their communities and the region. The district is committed to graduating every student college and/or career ready by empowering staff to deliver high quality instruction and services in a safe and trusting environment
