About Us

Faculty and Staff Directory

For more than three decades, a Covenant education has provided the tools for students to be curious, creative, tenacious, compassionate, and engaged. Our graduates make worthwhile contributions to their colleges, communities, and professions, and though many years have passed for some, alumni can still recall the teachers who made a significant impact on them during their time at the school.

Over 70 faculty members make up the heart of the Covenant community, serving as mentors, coaches, and advisors to the students under their care. Staff and administration support the work of the faculty and the families for which they serve.
