Covenant Classical has been such a blessing for my family. My son was struggling in the public-school setting but when we switched to Covenant Classical, he truly flourished. He is now thriving in his studies and he is eager to learn more. He loves school and is excited to attend each day. He feels that he is challenged, and the teachers acknowledge him as a contributor to the learning environment. He finally feels "seen" as a student. The culture is warm and engaging and truly sets children up for success. There is a right balance between rigor and fun that keeps the children wanting to come back each day. The importance of character development, the religious studies and the classical model of education truly make for an invaluable educational experience. Covenant Classical is an investment that will pay dividends in my son's education and heart for the rest of his life!

Covenant Classical School has been a great blessing to our family. Our two boys have been nurtured in mind, body, and spirit. The school has rigorous academics, a strong community, and an excellent faculty. The school is not afraid to challenge the students to grow and develop their gifts fully.

Our child is finishing her first year of school here, and our experience has been AMAZING! The school is incredibly diverse, the children are very respectful, the teachers are incredibly engaged and involved with the children - I could not say enough great things about the school. Academically, our child has learned both reasoning ability and facts, far beyond what most Kindergarteners know. One of the reasons we chose Covenant was to find a school that not only excels in academia, but also teaches the kids the vital life skills and ability to think for themselves, which will be required of them to be successful in life. In addition to receiving grades for the standard subjects typically taught, the students receive grades on crucial life skills that need to be developed such as time management, showing respect, etc.
