The History of Chaffee County High School
Chaffee County High School began in 1990 as a collaborative effort between the Buena Vista and Salida school districts to serve students whose needs were not being met by the traditional system. Students then received a high school diploma through independent studies. As the students and culture has changed in the valley, so has Chaffee County High School. We have evolved into the educational option that meets the needs of students by providing multiple learning options so that they will earn their high school diploma.
