We are a program that is 19 athletic programs and 34 state championships strong. We are a Division 2 school in the Virginia Independent School Athletic Association (VISAA). Our teams compete in the League of Independent Schools (LIS) and the Virginia Independent Conference (VIC).

Participation in sports at The Covenant School is both a privilege and an important part of a child’s education. We believe that sportsmanship, hard work, teamwork, and fair play are the building blocks of a sound athletic program. While winning is valued, there is an overriding emphasis on character formation. Over 70% of our students participate on at least one athletic team, while many students participate on several teams. This high participation rate reflects the inclusive nature of the athletic program, the quality of the coaching staff, the camaraderie of our teams, and the enjoyment that athletics provide.
