A little more about us
QUESTION 1: "How will admissions work for 2021-2022 school year."
We plan to limit our 8th, 9th and 10th grades to 15 students each. We offer rolling admissions, and will take students and families through our enrollment process in the order in which applications are received. We think it is important to keep the student-to-teacher ratio low.
QUESTION 2: "Where will the school be located?"
We had an opportunity to upgrade to the former Two Rivers school building (525 Scott Street in Covington), directly across from the Kenton County Library. The Two Rivers building has the space to be CCA’s home for at least the next five years. The entire building is undergoing a complete renovation. You can follow along with the renovation progress on our Facebook page, including renderings and photos as construction continues.
QUESTION 3: "What are the long term plans for the school?"
We will add a grade each school year, graduating our first class in the spring of 2024. We'll begin the accreditation process in 2022. Board member Damian Kavanagh was in charge of accreditation for the Southern Association of Independent Schools for seven years and will lead the process. We expect to have about 100 students by 2025.
QUESTION 4: "Why is the Athenian Owl the logo?"
The owl has long been a symbol of wisdom. In ancient Greece, it was associated with Athena, the goddess of wisdom, and her patron city, Athens. The Golden Age of Athens gave us so many great orators and thinkers, historians, playwrights, poets, and philosophers. We still study and read Plato and Socrates, Aeschylus and Aristophanes, Herodotus and Thucydides. They still have much to teach us.
QUESTION 5: "Is there an extra charge for the Fifth Day activities?"
No. The tuition covers all expenses, including transportation, for Fifth Day experiences. There will be some optional overnight or extracurricular activities offered to students, like the Kentucky and National JCL Conventions, that will require an additional charge.
QUESTION 6: "How much is tuition?"
Annual tuition is $9,750. We offer financial aid with the goal of allowing any admitted student to attend Covington Classical Academy.
QUESTION 7: "What are the building hours for students before and after school?"
The building will be open to students from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. with the exception of Fifth Day schedules when the building closes at 3:30 p.m. The Kenton County Public Library and other "Safe Zone" areas are an easy walk from the school to allow many options for parents and guardians with a busy schedule. In addition, there is a TANK bus stop at the school's front door. Parents will also be given support in establishing a carpooling network to make the dropoff and pickup schedule easier.
