The school was established in 1959 following the consolidation of all the rural high schools throughout Edmonson County. The original location was at 191 West Center Street, which was home of the Edmonson County Middle School from 1981 until summer 2004, and is now the current location of the Edmonson County Fifth/Sixth Grade Center since 2004. The current Edmonson County High School was completed in 1981.
In the early 2000s, the decision was made to expand the high school facility and to construct a new Middle School next to the high school. That project was completed in time for the start of the 2004–2005 academic year.
The school's academic team is one of the most competitive in the state, earning district, regional and state honors in Kentucky Governors' Cup competition. They won three straight state NAQT titles from 1996 to 1998. In 1990, they were Beta Quizbowl national runners up. Edmonson County has sent 3 students in its history to Gatton Academy.
The marching band competes around the state at KMEA and MSBA sanctioned competitions (the Marching Band is classified as 1A West) each year starting from August and ending in October. The band is one of the smallest in Kentucky averaging around 25 members. The band performs at football games for Half-Time entertainment. The band also plays at Basketball games and or any district/state tournaments. The band has gone to KMEA State 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2018.
The Edmonson County High School athletic teams are known as the Wildcats. The school colors are navy blue, red, and white.
The football team competes in the KHSAA at the Class 3A level. The school's main rivalry is with the Grayson County Cougars. The two teams play in the Tobacco Bowl each year, with the winner getting to keep a ceremonial tobacco stick as a trophy. The stick is usually painted in the winning team's school colors.
