Life at Covenant

DSC_0511

Covenant students are part of a community of learners; a community where parents, faculty, staff, and students work together in partnership toward a common goal of educating each student to the fullest potential while building strong character, good citizenship, and leadership qualities. The Covenant School provides a rich program of activities beyond daily academics.

Upper School

An important part of student life at the Upper School is involvement in clubs, academic and governing councils, and community service projects. Upper School students have the opportunity to join the staff of school newspaper or yearbook. In addition to drama classes offered during the school day, students may also participate in drama productions after school. Over 80 percent of Upper School students participate after school on one of over 30 athletic teams at Covenant. Students at Covenant’s upper campus enjoy a wide variety of choices to suit their personal desires and interests.

From energetic pep rallies, to meaningful Chapel services, to competitive House activities, Covenant offers engaging extracurricular opportunities that provide a full and well-rounded experience.

Lower School

Each morning at the Lower School begins with classroom gatherings, a time for children to build community and pray for their day. Students are taught appropriate social skills – a firm handshake and strong eye contact, sharing and listening skills – because we believe that when children feel comfortable socially, they are more likely to take risks academically.

Throughout the year, Lower School students partner with and cheer on their peers across the grade levels. From the Greek Olympics to the Thanksgiving Feast to the sixth grade play, our students encourage and edify each other.
