School Notes

  • Covenant Christian Academy is a Christian and Classical Co-Educational College Prep Day School for students in Pre-K through Grade 12. Outstanding teachers engage students in small classes and challenge them to think critically and seek truth in all things. Our students learn to read widely, to think deeply and to write clearly as they prepare not only to excel in college but to impact society as leaders with sincere faith and strong character. There is no place like Covenant and no better value in Private Education.
