Three Fillmore County Public School Districts have successfully created an academic environment where every student has the opportunity to reach towards his or her potential. 

Fillmore Central  incorporates the communities of Geneva, Fairmont, Grafton, and Ohiowa.   Exeter-Milligan  serves students in the communities of Exeter and Milligan.   The Shickley School  educates students in the community of Shickley. School districts have open option enrollment and follow the policy of "no child left behind".  The  Educational Service Unit No. 6  in Milford, Nebraska supports all the schools in Fillmore County in the areas of special education, media/technology, and professional development.  Grace Lutheran School  in Geneva is a private school sponsored by the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Church for students in grades K-8.
The school districts in Fillmore County belong to a consortium of seven school districts to provide Special Education services to all children and young adults with disabilities from birth to age 21.  Fillmore Central houses most of the program.
Students in both the public and private schools have scored above the average in both the Nebraska math and reading standards.  More than 85% of students take the ACT test resulting in an average score of 20.8.  It is estimated that 98 percent of the eighth grade students finish high school and 75% of the graduating seniors pursue a post secondary dege.
