Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! Students who live off post may enroll in the Fort Campbell schools if sponsor’s assignment to family quarters is made within 180 school days. Upon parent request, the housing office must provide a written statement. Students will be subject to dis-enrollment unless the sponsor provides proof of occupancy in on-post housing in this 180 school day period. However, the family must provide transportation to and from school.

The off post school districts require a student to attend the school designated for his or her residence. Most off post districts do not allow children to move out of the assigned school. However, some districts have developed a limited school-of-choice or open enrollment policy for students who wish to attend a school or program outside the area for which they are zoned. Applications for such request are usually offered at one specific time of the year. In most cases, attendance zone exceptions are limited by space including program space availability in the receiving school. Contact your local school district for specifics. 


Each parent and child must decide which school is best for them. This decision is best made by visiting prospective schools, researching the schools via their web page, and talking to teachers, children, and administrators. Since your street address designates where your child will attend school, we recommend you shop for a school before you shop for a house.


Each school district has a web page where you can research test scores, school safety, and teacher-pupil ratio. The majority of students in the Fort Campbell area attend the following school districts:

Fort Campbell Community Schools

Clarksville/Montgomery County School District

Christian County School District

Stewart Count School District

Todd County School District

Trigg County School District

Cheatham County School District

Kentucky School Districts
