The Class of 2019 at Charlton County High School had the highest CCHS graduation rate in its history since graduation rates began being monitored. Among the nine high schools in the Okefenokee Regional Educational Services Agency (RESA) area, Charlton recorded the second highest graduation rate trailing only Bacon County High School. The Okefenokee RESA includes schools in Ware, Charlton, Clinch, Atkinson, Pierce, Brantley, Coffee, and Bacon counties. The CCHS rate for 2019 was 90.8 percent and exceeds the state average of 82 percent.
The federal Department of Education requires school systems to disaggregate data among subgroups of student populations. For all students the graduation rate was 90.8 percent but when the data are disaggregated for black students, CCHS has the highest graduation rate in the entire Okefenokee RESA area. The graduation rate for black students at CCHS was 94.9 percent compared to the state average of 79.6 percent.
