1833 - 1889

This private institution, although undergoing several trusteeships and name changes, continuously functioned as an exclusive female school for over 50 years. It attracted students from southern states as well as local young ladies. Out of town students boarded with Covington residents. In 1863, the college having been closed due to the War served as a Confederate hospital. Union forces partially destroyed the building. Reopened in 1867, it remained a female college until 1889 when the newly formed Covington City School Commission acquired the property. There was a gradual merging of the Female College, the Male Academy, as well as other Covington scholars. Thus the Covington Public School System was formed.
