  • They utilize multiple modes of instruction to meet students' needs, and take the time necessary to help students toward subject mastery.

When it comes to Private Schools in Orange County this is one of the best. As a parent of 3 young kids, 2 of them in private school, the opinion of other parents carries a lot of weight for us as a family. I have talked w/ several parents of kids here at Covenant Christian School and they LOVE it. From the heart of the teaching staff all the way up to the vision of the Head of School. This place rocks! It's awesome to know that God is doing some great work in the hearts and lives of our kids in today's technology crazed society... Praise God for Covenant Christian School in Orange.

Both of our children attended Covenant and they both weren't great students when they started, but with teachers that cared and working with a great academic coach they excelled one is now doing well in College and the other at Lutheran. Both played multiple sports and they loved it. They learned discipline, respect, sportsmanship, great study habits and most of all a love for Jesus Christ. They both love working with the little children and being a role model for them; that is something that Covenant teaches.

Amazing integration of faith and education. As a former student it gave me the foundation I needed!

I am a former student of Covenant Christian School, and have also had two of my children attned Covenant for pre-school. I have very fond memories of my years at Covenant. The teachers made a lasting impact on my life, not only preparing me academically, but also strenghtening my relationship with the Lord. The pre-school program is fabulous! My children were reading basic words by the end of the program, and had a solid start to their education. I am so pleased to see that the dedication to Christ and high academic standards that I enjoyed as a student are still in place for my children at Covenant today!

My daughter went to CCS Kindergarten through 8th Grade and loved every day of her time at CCS. She now goes to a private HS, but frequently visits CCS and will always have fond memories of it.
