Highland Heights

Nestled in the quiet hills just a few miles south of the Ohio River, Highland Heights has grown since its founding in the 1920s from a small farming community to home of one of the fast-growing postsecondary institutions in the state, Northern Kentucky University (NKU).
The city’s motto — Growth Through Progress — is apparent not only in the ongoing expansion of NKU’s campus but in the growing diversity of Highland Heights residents and its broad range of real estate and commercial offerings. Visitors to the city will find walkable streets with quick access to retail and restaurants as well as quieter subdivisions adjacent to family-friendly parks and recreational facilities.
K-12 students in Highland Heights attend the consistently high-ranking Campbell County School District.
