New to the Blue

dates and times for 2020 new to the blue are tbd

Covington Catholic's "New to the Blue" is a program for non-district freshmen and transfer students. It is designed to help these students meet each other and some other current students during the summer months so those first few days are comfortable for students coming in from outside our typical feeder schools.

Once the new school year starts, it doesn't matter what grade school you came from.... everyone becomes a Covington Catholic Colonel!

Take the opportunity to join clubs, participate in sports, sit with someone different every day at lunch and get to know all of your classmates. Your best memories of high school will be with guys you have yet to meet!

2020 DATES: late july (dATES TBD)

If your son is from an out of district school, this event is for you! One of the best ways to help your son feel comfortable and excited about Covington Catholic High School is participating in our New to the Blue event. Spending two hours at CCH, during one of the two scheduled times listed below, will ensure that your son makes some new friends and is familiar with the school and staff.

The event will take place at Covington Catholic High School.
