Mission Statement:

Covenant Academy exists to serve Christ and His Kingdom by sharing the gospel and partnering with parents to train students by way of Scripture and the classical liberal arts.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

God calls parents to teach their children what is true, good, and beautiful. They are called to teach them faithfully, thoroughly, and diligently. Our school exists to partner with parents in this calling. We believe that classical education is simply a rediscovery of God's design for education: pedagogy that is centered around discipleship through great stories, great discussions, and great community. (Genesis 1 and 3, Deuteronomy 6, Ephesians 6, and Colossians 1)

School History:

In 2003, a group of parents partnered together to provide a classical Christian education for their children. Classical Christian education is designed according to the development of the student and pairs great methods with great stories and skills to cultivate students who flourish as they learn. Starting with just 56 students, classes for students in grades K-8 were formed while renting from a nearby church. In 2008, Covenant was given its facility on Telge Road, which has allowed resources to be poured into faculty and students instead of buildings.

In 2012, we launched our high school and graduated our first class in 2016. PK-12th student enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year is 145 students with the high school comprised of 34 students. Our upper school (grades 7-12) has an average class size of 10.5 students. All upper school faculty members are degreed with respect to their disciplines and 40% hold advanced degrees.

Covenant is organized into four houses: Washington, Madison, Hamilton, and Henry. Houses provide mentorship opportunities and infrastructure across grade levels. Our students actively participate in maintaining our House courtyard gardens, a reminder that we are cultivators of truth, goodness, and beauty.

Notes/School Information:

In all our programs and teachings, we seek to be:

Christ-Centered: We teach all subjects as parts of an integrated whole with the Scriptures at the center; pursue academic excellence to equip students to stand firm in their belief of a Christian worldview when confronted with other worldviews; provide a clear model of a biblical Christian life through our faculty and staff (Matthew 22:37-40); and encourage each student to begin and develop his relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18-20, Matthew 19:13-15).

Classical: We emphasize grammar, logic and rhetoric in all subjects; encourage every student to develop a love for learning and seek God's glory in all things; and provide an orderly, loving environment that nurtures human flourishing.
