"The truth in its wholeness-- for the whole child, for the whole of life, for the glory of God-- this is what the curriculum is all about." - Norman E. Harper, Making Disciples At New Covenant, we want to partner with parents to educate the whole child for the whole of life.
So, while we are focused on sharpening the minds of our students, we also strive to shepherd their hearts and to shape their lives.
By the grace of God, we want them to know the truth, to love the truth and to live the truth.
We do this through a classical Christian education that challenges the mind, enages the heart, and enobles the soul.

We cannot say enough about how great New Covenant is! The curriculum is challenging but it is taught but such talented teachers that the kids love it and enjoy all that they are learning--even our nine year old boy! They truly make learning fun! We have been amazed by how much our son and the other children learn and retain because of the classical Christian education model being used at the school. It is such a loving environment with teachers and administrators who care deeply about all the kids. With smaller class sizes, the children all get the attention they need and don't just feel like a number. They have a recitation in May that is not to be missed! It is nothing short of amazing to see how much these children learn each year and most importantly how much they grow in their love for the Lord.

What a wonderful school! New Covenant has provided the most excellent education available in Harford County and my children have been blessed to have benefited from great teachers, a classical and top rate curriculum, and a loving, caring, and encouraging environment. The tuition is very reasonable and watching our children grow into very responsible, literate, students who are capable of using rhetoric, debate, written thesis, and logic to defend and persuade, while becoming strong leaders has been a joy for us! I cannot state emphatically enough that this school's teacher to student ratio is so important and the challenging classes are so refreshing!

I travel to New Covenant from Cecil County because there's not another school closer that has the high quality of education combined with the solid Biblical doctrine than New Covenant. There are other Christian schools and there is a closer classical school, but none of them offer the kind of education where it's "cool" to be a smart kid! Plus, the facility is clean and the staff and other families are very friendly...definitely worth the tuition which is less expensive than classical schools in other states.

NCCS has been such a blessing to our family. The Christ-centered, classical approach has enabled our children to learn and grow in a nurturing environment where they are challenged academically and learn to think for themselves. The teachers and staff are amazing with the children and partner with the parents to provide a quality education.
