Fort Thomas Named "Most Educated City" in Kentucky

Fort Thomas was named the most educated city in Kentucky by Insurify.

“Across America, educational success is a vital factor in determining the advancement of a local economy,” said Snejina Zacharia, CEO of Insurify. “These awards recognize the communities in each state whose residents demonstrate an unmatched commitment to their education.”

To determine the most educated community in each U.S. state, Insurify analyzed over 1.4 million completed auto insurance applications in which individuals were asked about their city of residence and highest level of education. Using a proprietary scoring algorithm, our analysts calculated a score for each applicant based on educational achievement, and, for current high school students, likelihood of advancement to college based on reported GPA. The resulting data set was analyzed to determine the average scores for each city across all age ranges, and a composite score was created for each city. Top scoring cities were then selected for all U.S. states.

The U.S. Census Bureau recently reported that for the first time in history, over one-third of American adults now have at least a Bachelor’s degree and high school completion rates are at an all-time peak. The advantages of education are well documented: studies have shown that high educational attainment correlates with higher rates of employment and earning potential. As a result, our most educated communities have an increasing capacity to become strong economic forces within the country.
