   There are no private schools in Eureka County. The Great Basin Community College offers classes for adults. The school building in Beowawe is not used for classes, since students from Beowawe attend school in the Town of Crescent Valley, but the building is used as a recreation center and is maintained by Eureka County's juvenile probation office.

   The building provides basketball courts and other recreation activities for adults and children. High school students from Crescent Valley and Beowawe attend Battle Mountain High School. Pine Valley high school students go to Carlin High School.
