The next generation of leaders isn’t very hard to find in Vicksburg: just peek into any classroom.

Vicksburg-Warren Schools Lead State

From pre-kindergarten programs all the way through high school and college, Vicksburg and Warren County have education covered. All Vicksburg Warren School District schools have been classified by the U.S. Dept. of Education as successful, exemplary or superior, and the district has more Advanced Placement classes than almost any other system in Mississippi. The district’s more than 9,000 students also have access to the Gifted and Talented Educational Services Program and Mississippi Scholars Program.

Private Schools Give Vicksburg Parents Choice

Private schools are another quality option here, with some of the state and region’s best right in town. Among them is Vicksburg Community School, which works with above-average and gifted students; Porter’s Chapel Academy and Campus Preparatory Christian School, faith-based college preparatory schools; and the parochial system operated by Vicksburg Catholic Schools, which includes St. Aloysius High School and St. Francis Xavier Elementary School.
