- Exceptional students often require educational opportunities that likewise are exceptions to the norm. Ranked by Cincinnati Magazine as the #1 private school in Northern Kentucky, Covington Latin School has developed an unparalleled reputation by fostering an atmosphere of academic and spiritual leadership through its accelerated curriculum. And there has never been a more exciting time to be at Latin School.The premise of acceleration is simple: given the wide-ranging aptitude and needs of same-age children, research shows that inclination and ability are much more accurate determinants of placement than age alone. Latin School offers an opportunity for bright and enthusiastic fifth, sixth and seventh grade students to advance one to two years, to a curriculum more appropriate to their needs. Admission is selective, ensuring that incoming students will be surrounded with a talented and motivated peer group. The cultivation of this atmosphere dates back to 1923 when Bishop Howard founded Covington Latin as a college preparatory school to serve the "best and brightest".The Class of 2014 averaged a 28.4 ACT composite and earned $10.6 million in scholarship offers, averaging over $213,000 per student. Graduates enjoy 100% college placement and go on to excel in the nation`s finest colleges and universities, with 98% holding bachelor`s degrees and 48% with graduate or terminal degrees (MD, PhD, JD, etc.). Alumni have compiled tremendous records of achievement and leadership in the Church, business, law, engineering, medicine, public service, education, science and technology.Known as the Bishop`s School (CLS students are uniquely privileged to become Pontifical Servers), Latin School is a place of abundant spiritual growth. Religion coursework builds on the foundations developed within families and provides a comprehensive understanding of the Catholic faith. That knowledge is put into practice by the Campus Ministry through weekly all-school Masses in the Cathedral, class retreats and humanitarian service work.Extracurricular involvement reflects student leadership and commitment to academic, social, spiritual, and personal aspects of their total education. Latin School offers a broad spectrum of clubs and organizations to deepen existing interests or develop new ones, from visual arts and philanthropy to social activism and recreation. Latin School is a member of the KHSAA and offers baseball, basketball, bowling, cheerleading, cross-country, golf, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis, track and volleyball. Varsity and Junior Varsity teams are offered (based on demand) giving everyone a chance to participate while building self-confidence, fitness and sportsmanship.Financial wealth should not determine access to the best education, nor should it shape a learning community. Latin School offers generous tuition assistance to academically qualified students whose families would otherwise be unable to financially consider the tuition investment. Students come from varied economic, cultural and geographic backgrounds, drawing enrollment from throughout Southern Ohio, Indiana and seven counties of Northern Kentucky. We believe students are best prepared for college and the world beyond by learning in a diverse, coeducational atmosphere reflective of and therefore preparatory for, their future life experiences. Latin students represent a broad spectrum, but are unified by their considerable ability, a pride in being part of the CLS tradition and unique sense of purpose and belonging.To further enhance its ability to deliver on its mission of educational excellence, Latin School experienced a transformative $9.9 million expansion and full renovation of its existing facilities in 2011. This includes three university-level science classrooms and laboratories, a technology center, physical education space, fine arts studio, courtyard, a spacious two-level commons area and a stunning new multi-use cafeteria.We are now seeking a new generation of leaders to join our legacy of achievement.
