  • General Information:
    Established in 1915 as a day school with college preparatory standards,
    Collegiate was the first school of its kind in Kentucky.
    Although initially the primary grades were coed, the school remained
    predominantly a school for girls until 1972, when the Board of Trustees
    charted a bold new course to gradually expand to a fully coed school which
    would graduate its first class in 1987.
