Defiance High School students have the option of attending Four County Career Center for their last 2 years of high school. While Four County is not for everyone, it certainly is an excellent choice for many students. You may attend college after Four County. Our Four County students may still participate in Defiance athletics. Your diploma comes from Defiance High School just like your classmates. Many students appreciate earning graduation credits while learning useful job skills through hands-on activities every school day.
