“One of the things I enjoy is introducing the classical Christian model to families considering Covenant for their children. From mastering the foundations for future learning in the early education years to defending their Senior Thesis, the value that a classical education offers students is unlimited. It is encouraging for both me and parents to watch their children grow into young men and women that can think for themselves and articulate their thoughts persuasively and eloquently. I believe these skills will lead to lifelong success and that these students will impact the world around them for Christ with integrity and grace.” 

While the broader educational system is taking a beating in the headlines, the value of a classical education is becoming more and more evident. Covenant not only holds faithful to the classical model, cultivating critical thinking skills grounded in Christian values, but the faculty and staff are consistently invested in the success of our children. It’s not just about academics and athletics, there is a real sense of community within the school.
