About Aim High Driving School

Welcome,

Thank you  for taking the time to visit our site and to see what all we have to offer!  It is hard to believe that we have been open for over three years now and have two locations.  Opening up a driving school became a dream of mine while I was still teaching Driver/Physical Education at Franklin County High School. I wanted to continue my passion for teaching but at the same time, be able to have the ability to work with all different ages and types of people within the community.

It is never an easy decision to leave the security of one job and open a small business.  So far, I have found the rewards of helping people, one license at a time, has far surpassed the fear of not making it as a company.  I owe the majority of our school’s success to the amazing, experienced, and dedicated staff we have at Aim High.  Their dedication to teaching the importance of driver education and safety is a true testament to their character.  As educators, drivers, and parents ourselves, we know just how important it is for all new drivers to receive the very best of classroom and on-the-road instruction available!  Please take a few extra seconds to read about our wonderful instructors in the below section and thank you again. Safe travels!

Sincerely,

Holly Carpenter, owner
