About Us

Headmaster's Welcome


For 35 years, The Covenant School has been teaching the next generation how to live well. As Headmaster of the school since 2011 and as a father, I believe that selecting the best education for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make in your journey as a parent.

Covenant offers a rigorous, college preparatory education, enabling students to explore their interests and make connections across disciplines. Our student-scholars apprentice under the guidance of experienced faculty who are often times experts in their fields.

In an ever-changed world, a Covenant education provides the critical thinking and problem-solving skills necessary for success. Not only that, wisdom and eloquence are cultivated here. Using lessons from the past in order to see the current moment more clearly, students hone wisdom and understanding to make worthwhile contributions in their classes, homes, and communities. And, of course, our biblical worldview honors Christ and acknowledges Him as the center of all things.

The basis of the School is the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments and the infallible Word of God, as interpreted in the historic Christian Confessions. The School is not an ecclesiastical body nor is it subject to any ecclesiastical organization.

I hope you’ll enjoy exploring our website, but even more, I hope you will visit us on campus soon to observe classes, meet faculty, and discover for yourself what is unique about The Covenant School. I look forward to meeting you.
