The Knox County Public Schools and Superintendent Jeremy Ledford are excited to announce the selection of Aimee Gross as principal of Knox County Learning Academy.

Gross brings a wealth of experience and a strong commitment to fostering academic excellence and student success. The Learning Academy consists of the academy itself, with a focus on credit recovery, Day Treatment which is court appointed student enrollment, and students at the Knox Appalachian School, serving those in residence at Appalachian Children’s Home.

With 13 years of experience in education, Gross has served as both a special education teacher and a math teacher. She holds degrees in special education from Eastern Kentucky University, math from Western Governors University, and school leadership from Georgetown College.  Most recently, Gross has been teaching math at Knox Central High School.

Expressing her gratitude for the opportunity, Gross stated, “I am very grateful to be able to step into this new role within my Knox County Schools family and thankful for the support of my husband and two children as I make this transition. My vision for the school is for students and staff to find a place where they can be successful. I would like to continue the high expectations I had for my own classroom in this new position.”

Her dedication to education and her commitment to creating an environment where both students and staff can thrive make her an excellent fit for Knox Learning Academy.
