Welcome to Camden County Schools

In 2018, Camden earned a district average of 84.4, which is more than 7 points above the state average of 76.6 on the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI). The Class of 2018 received over $10 million dollars in scholarships to pursue post-secondary education. 

Cenergistic Award

The Camden County Board of Education was awarded the Cenergistic Chairman's Sustainability Award at the January Board of Education Meeting. Camden County is one of only two school systems in the state to earn this award for energy conservation.

Our school system has saved over $5.5 million dollars in energy costs since we began our energy conservation initiative in 2011. The energy conservation efforts of our teachers, students and staff have not only saved millions of dollars for education but have also conserved enough energy to equal the planting of over 500,000 tree saplings.

Title I Distinguished Schools
Four Camden Schools Named in 2018 Title I Distinguished Schools’ List

Four Camden County schools were recently named Title I Distinguished Schools by the Georgia Department of Education.  Camden County High School, St. Marys Middle School, Matilda Harris Elementary School and St. Marys Elementary are the four Camden County Schools to earn this distinguished honor.  The highest ranking Title I schools in Georgia are named Title I Distinguished Schools and only 84 schools in the state made the list. Title I Distinguished Schools, when ranked according to their most recent CCRPI single score, are among the highest performing schools that represent 5% of all Title I Schools in the state.

The Georgia Department of Education introduced the Title I Distinguished School program in the fall of this year as part of the Title I Reward Schools program. Title I Distinguished Schools replace the previous Title I Highest Performing Reward Schools designation. The Department of Education will continue to recognize schools for greatest gains as Title I Reward Schools but those schools will not be named until the fall of 2019.

Schools with a percentage of students eligible for free or reduced lunch at or above 40% are eligible for Title I schoolwide services.  All twelve of Camden County Schools are successful, schoolwide Title I schools.

Self-Control
Choosing to do what you should do even when you don't want to

It is very important to use self-control when you meet an unfamiliar animal. Do not touch any animal unless you have asked the animal's owner if it is safe and if you are welcome to touch the animal. Some animals are working or service animals and cannot be petted while they are on the job.
