Covenant Academy is a classical Christian school in northwest Houston fully accredited by Advanc-ED. Our school exists to cultivate leaders equipped to honor and defend truth, goodness, and beauty.
We partner with parents to train students by way of Scripture and the classical liberal arts to be discerning, articulate followers of Jesus Christ.
Covenant Academy is committed to teaching all subjects as part of an integrated whole with the Scriptures at the center and to pursuing academic excellence that is defined and measurable.

School Reviews

Last year was our first at Covenant Academy and our only regret is we wish we had started there years early! Covenant Academy is a school built on academic excellence and Biblical values. Our children continue to grow every day in their academic studies and in their walk with Christ. The faculty, staff and administrators serve the campus whole-heartedly and are compassionate about their call to teach the students in a Christian environment. My kids come home better every day because of it! This school offers and promotes a family-like atmosphere with a genuine sense of community. Parental involvement is strongly encouraged and our volunteer program is thriving. We are at Covenant Academy for the long haul and can?'t wait to see what God has in store for this school!

Our family has been going to Covenant for over five years now and we love our school. The teachers teach more than just academics - they train the hearts of children. The faculty and staff truly partner with us as parents to develop our children to be articulate followers of Christ. Our children are involved in several music and after school clubs and compete in the ACSI district math, speech, choir, and spelling contests. I wholeheartedly recommend visiting this school if you are looking for more than a private, Christian education for your children.
