Henderson County Public Schools and the Henderson County Board of Commissioners will celebrate the opening of the new Hendersonville High School campus on Wednesday, Aug. 3 in time for the start of the 2022-2023 school year, according to a July 26 press release.

The ribbon cutting is the culmination of a four-year-long school construction and renovation project that’s been completed 11 months earlier than its original end date. Originally slated for completion in August 2023, the project moved ahead of schedule during 2020 and 2021 when remote learning was in place due to COVID-19 and students were off campus.

“This $60 million investment in our community’s education facilities shows the support of past Commissioners and as well as the current Board of Public Education of our young people,” Board of Commissioners Chair Bill Lapsley said. “The previous campus facilities prevailed for over 100 years and we hope that these new facilities will carry on the community’s tradition of excellence in education.”
