Welcome to Covington Catholic High School
On behalf of the students, faculty, staff, school board, coaches, parents and alumni, I welcome you to the website of Covington Catholic High School. We use this site, along with Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, to keep members and followers of the Colonel community informed and excited about the many wonderful aspects of our school.
Covington Catholic High School is the only all-male high school in Northern Kentucky. A Catholic school within the Diocese of Covington, our mission is to embrace the Gospel message of Jesus Christ in order to educate young men spiritually, academically, physically, and socially.
We are a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education and accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Our curriculum and culture allow boys to thrive in ways different from that of a co-ed environment. We understand that teenage boys learn and behave differently than teenage girls, and we embrace those differences.
We are in our 88th year of educating young men and have graduated over 8,000 alumni. This year we have 570 young men enrolled in our school with a faculty and staff of over 45 professionals with an average of 24 years of teaching experience. We are proud to note that the faculty who choose to work here are among the most talented and dedicated in the profession. Without their commitment, Covington Catholic would not be what it is. Our academic mission, in word and practice, focuses on individual student excellence. We prepare young men for leadership in a global society that demands spiritual vision, excellence in character, and intellect.
We are committed to supporting our students as they learn of their faith and develop their relationships with our Lord. Our students are service-oriented contributing over 16,000 hours of service to more than 190 community organizations each year. A unique aspect of a Covington Catholic education is that our students can earn a letter for their commitment to service, just like our athletes. One hundred percent of our student body participates in at least one extracurricular activity. Our athletic teams successfully compete among the best in the region and most of our teams have won state titles.
Our future holds much promise. Our enrollment is increasing – up 15% in the past five years – and our campus is expanding – an additional seven acres of property acquired. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. It's an exciting time for the Covington Catholic Community. We hope you share our enthusiasm.
