Tuition and Fees

Covenant Senior

The most important thing I’ve learned at Covenant is how to engage with the world around me. Covenant has given me the fundamentals to learn, the instruction to grow as a human being, and a greater capacity to love my classmates and myself.

Investing in Your Child’s Future

For most families, investing in a private school education requires careful financial planning and a serious commitment from both the home and school. We are committed to making the Covenant experience available to as many families as possible and look forward to working with you. We encourage any family that is concerned about their ability to afford a Covenant education to apply for financial aid.


Approximately 42% of Covenant’s students receive tuition assistance in the form of financial aid and scholarship awards. A robust financial aid program is available for students entering Kindergarten through Grade 12 to families who demonstrate need through an annual online application process with FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment prior to the February 8 deadline. Please note that the FACTS financial aid process and link are different from the FACTS tuition management registration. Contact the Admissions and Financial Aid Office at 434-220-7330 for details.

We are pleased to offer flexibility in tuition payment through a third-party tuition payment system called FACTS. By setting up your personal account through the Covenant portal, you can pre-authorize your bank or credit card company to make payments based on your preferences for the following payment plans:
