Lawrence County is serious about the importance of education. In fact, we have recently finished construction on a new multi-million dollar elementary school complex in Lawrenceville and a new high school complex in Bridgeport. We want our children to have access to the best possible education. Lawrence County is also very fortunate to have four (4) community colleges within a 30 minute radius. These fine community colleges are available for continuing, vocational and technical education needs and interests. Students wishing to further their education even more may do so at any of eight (8) colleges and universities within a 60 minute drive of Lawrence County.
