Superintendent's Message

Steve Smith

BCHS wins appeal to remain in Class AA! A big thank you to Benjy Rogers, Athletic Director, for presenting our case.


Congratulations to our BCHS Boys Cross Country Team in winning their first State Class AA Championship and to Carl Ellis Corley, Individual Class AA State Champ!


Thank you for visiting our website. We appreciate the opportunity to serve the children of Bleckley County and surrounding counties. We have a rich history of achievement in academics, athletics, and the arts. Our motto and vision are "Expect Excellence," and we strive for excellence in all that we do.

Our high school mascot is the Royals, and our middle school mascot is the Barons. Our teachers, bus drivers, support staff, and administrators all belong to the "Royal Family," and we firmly believe our students deserve our best each and every day.

The Bleckley County community truly supports our school system, and our residents value education. Although we have high levels of poverty in our community, we do not allow our students' economic situation to limit their possibilities. Our goal is to help our students dream big and equip them to achieve their dreams.

We are the largest employer in our county, which is also home to the oldest junior college in the nation, Middle Georgia College, now a part of Middle Georgia State University. The Cochran-Bleckley community is a wonderful place to live and raise a family.

Our small town values and friendly atmosphere contribute to an envrionment where our teachers know our students by name and treat them as their own. We have competent, compassionate and caring staff members who have high expectations for themselves and our students.

One of our greatest challenges is teaching our students the importance of being at school on time every day. Employers do not allow their workers to have excessive tardies or absences, and we want to instill a great work ethic into our students. We need the help of every parent, grandparent and citizen to emphasize the importance of being at school everyday, all day.

Come see what makes Bleckley County Schools so special! If you would like to tour our schools or just chat with our administrators, feel free to call on us.

If I can ever be of service to you, please feel free to call upon me. My email address is and my phone numbers are: Office-4789342821 Ext 1100 and Cell-4782304198.

We would love to hear from you. Come find out what EXCELLENCE is all about!

Steve J. Smith, Superintendent
