"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.
