Welcome to The Covenant School! We are so glad you are here. We are a non-denominational
Christian school* serving students in central Virginia from Pre-K through Grade 12.
Why Covenant? A Covenant education draws upon the deep foundations of traditional education as well as the best of contemporary instructional forms. Our thoughtfully designed academic program shapes students to be curious, courageous, tenacious, compassionate, and engaged. 
Our graduates regularly gain admission into distinguished colleges and universities, and alumni make an impact in their communities and chosen professions.

*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.
