Covenant Christian Academy

  • Covenant Christian Academy is a preK-12 academy, designed for Christian families who wish to provide an exceptional education for their children that is based on the educational insights of the past (classical education).
  • Covenant is a classical school that uses time-tested methods that lead students toward truth, goodness, and beauty.
  • Specifically, we are attempting to recover the methods used by classical educators who taught the Trivium (meaning the three ways)--grammar, logic (or dialectic), and rhetoric.
  • Students in our Grammar School (K-6) focus on learning the grammar of subjects such as english, mathematics, history, music, and science.
  • Students in the Dialectic School focus on learning how to reason, argue, and debate (logic/dialectic) through almost every course they study.
  • Students in the Rhetoric School focus on learning how to speak and write persuasively.
