Brookville High School is a high school in Campbell County, Virginia, United States.

The school was founded in 1926 with the first elementary classes beginning in November. The first high school classes began in 1927 with 2 teachers, and the first graduating class was 1930, with three graduates. The last graduating high school class from the original school was in 1966. The old building was eventually torn down in March, 1978 due to annexation. The current building was completed in 1969 and is now located on Laxton Road, on what is now the boundary between Campbell County and the city of Lynchburg. The Brookville attendance area is served by four schools: Tomahawk Elementary, Leesville Road Elementary, Brookville Middle, and Brookville High. Brookville High School has been accredited with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools since 1973.[2]
