School Notes

  • Covenant`s curriculum begins with the end in mind.The word curriculum describes much more than textbooks. It describes a journey. Deriving its meaning from the Latin"curro"orpath, it's the journey we want our students to take as they pursue wisdom and virtue. Whether they pursue college or a career after graduation, we want our students to be well-equipped for a lifetime of learning.

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.
