About Columbia County

Columbia County is nestled in the heart of north central Florida, offering an ideal blend of tropical weather with more northern scenery. Set in a gently rolling landscape, Columbia County features many rivers, creeks, ponds and lakes. Interstates 10 and 75 provide easy access from anywhere: north, south, east or west.  With Gainesville 40 miles to our south, Jacksonville 60 miles to our east, and Tallahassee 100 miles to our west, Columbia County is centrally located to a multitude of events and activities.

Central to the area’s economy is the Columbia County School System, the largest community employer, with each employee playing a vital role in providing quality education.

Our schools remain the main emphasis for our community. There are 14 school sites within the Columbia County School System in grades PreK-12. There are nine elementary schools, two middle schools, and two high schools, including Fort White High, which has grades 6-12. Additionally, Pathways Academy is our alternative education site for grades K-12. Evening and adult classes are available to those wishing to advance their educational levels. All schools maintain high scholastic and academic standards as evidenced by the District holding district-wide accreditation from The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
