School Notes

  • The major distinction between Covenant and other schools is that we are a Christian, Classical, college-preparatory school committed to a classroom culture that is more engaged, interactive and dynamic.  Our goal is to graduate students that are well prepared for college academically and that are able to think analytically, critically and biblically as well as, communicate eloquently, logically and persuasively.

We moved our children from one of the best public school districts in Houston to Covenant at the beginning of this year, and we could not be happier about this decision. The classical Christian education is far superior to the public school "teach for the standardized tests" we experienced. In one year, we have noticed a very big difference in our children because of the focus on Logic, Rhetoric and Grammar. Christian influence and less exposure to negative influences has been very positive. Great leadership and great staff. Our children look forward to schooling every day in a very safe environment.

Covenant has proven to be the best decision for our children's education. We started with our oldest when he was in 7th grade and it was such a seamless transition from his previous school that we decided to transfer our other two children (then in 3rd and 5th). Our youngest began her schooling here in kinder. We have been with the school now for four years and are truly pleased with the challenging curriculum and conservative, loving environment. The quality of the faculty and staff is top notch! Covenant has many gifted teachers and the entire staff provides an amazing level of support and encourage to the students.

This school means so much to our family. The education my kids are getting is top-notch - and they're getting it in an extremely loving, joyful, and Christ-centered environment. I can't think of a better place for my kids to learn and grow! I'm beyond impressed by what they're being taught in every subject area. This isn't just another Christian school - this is truly a college-preparatory curriculum. But, I particularly love that the school focuses on developing students as individuals who can stand firm for and defend their beliefs, even if they don't have the popular opinion. The teachers go above and beyond for each and every child and truly partner with the parents on this journey. The administration is immediately responsive to every concern. I'm thankful every day that we have this school here in our community!

Great school. The classical, Christian model they use is amazing at both academic achievement and building people that love Truth, Goodness and Beauty. Intellect and wisdom is actively combined to build great thinkers with virtue. The traditions and eternal purpose they imbed in all they do makes this school about more than information, they are about formation.
