My exchange students have attended CLS for several years. Every person I have worked with in both the faculty and support staff and been a quality professional, excellent in their role, and super friendly to work with. Just as great, being newer to the CLS community, I have found the families at CLS to be genuine and welcoming people, inclusive of people from various cultural backgrounds. This is definitely the kind of community that models for teens what it means to be an excellent and kind person. Additionally, the academics are a cut-above and fully prepares a student interested in college.

I enjoyed going to CLS almost 20 years ago. Some of the same faculty is still there during my tenure at the school. Currently, I have 2 kids enrolled in elementary school and it has been fantastic. The teachers are outstanding with a challenging, but fun curriculum. The faculty does a great job with the students with the ongoing vision to develop & equip the next generation.

Covenant Life School is an acedemically rich environment. Our daughter is in middle school and has attended since Kindergarten. She has enjoyed the art and music classes and participatied on two well coached spots teams. The many elective( STEM, writing, history etc. ) provide opportunities for the students to grow into intelligent and well rounded individuals. The most significant aspect of CLS for our family is that it is a loving and nuturing environment.

I'm so grateful for Covenant Life School as my child has grown in so many ways - academically and spiritually from the godly character education provided by the skilled teachers. The teachers are always so encouraging and uplifting, finding the strengths of each child and encouraging them to grow in all realms of life.

Our son has been at Covenant Life School for two years, and he is thriving. The teachers are great - engaging, caring, and challenging the students to grow intellectually and spiritually. Our son is especially interested in computers and math, and he is thrilled with the quality of these departments. There are a lot of sports, music, and other extracurricular activiites, but the most important thing to me is the way students interact with eachother and their teachers. The community is a caring one, and as problems crop up, they are addressed quickly. We are very happy with Covenant Life School.
