School Notes:

  • Covenant Christian Academy offers a Christian and Classical education that builds students' academic, spiritual, and social foundations for lives marked by leadership and service in today's global community. A Covenant education prepares students to excel in collegiate studies and intellectual pursuits, nurtures Christian faith and character, and fosters individual gifts and abilities.
  • Academic foundations: Preparing students to excel in collegiate studies and intellectual pursuits. A Covenant education is preparatory for future studies. High academic standards combine with a rigorous curriculum and individualized attention to enable students to excel.
  • Spiritual foundations: Nurturing Christian faith and character. Christian faith is nurtured by academic instruction that includes the dimension of faith, intentional instruction at all grade levels in the content of Christian faith, and both modeling and encouragement in the daily practice of faith.
  • Social foundations: Fostering the gifts and abilities of each individual. Covenant places high value on an atmosphere marked by respect for individuals and all who are in authority, one that engenders healthy friendship among students, and between students and faculty. An ever expanding number of co-curricular activities in athletics and the arts get students involved in the school community, add fun, and provide opportunities to discover new gifts and talents.
  • At the heart of the students' experience at Covenant is the unique relationship they enjoy with the members of our faculty and staff. Our faculty and staff work at Covenant for the chance to share their minds, hearts, and lives with the students. The power of these teacher/students relationships makes a Covenant education more than valuable — it is potentially life-changing and life shaping.
