The Covenant Experience

Community Service

Upper School Community Service Captain

We structure community service at Covenant by focusing on fostering meaningful, long-term bonds with our neighbors.

The Joy of Serving

It is part of the missions of The Covenant School to nurture the habits of servanthood in the hearts and minds of our students. 

Lower School children are encouraged to recognize and practice I'm Third, an effort to create awareness—even at an early age—of God first, others second, self third. Students participate in grade-level service projects. School-wide initiatives also happen regularly at the Lower School.

Service at the Upper School flows through the House system with the motto For Others, For Christ. Each House elects a community service captain who coordinates efforts to serve nonprofit partners. With student involvement ranging from weekly tutoring and mentoring at the Boys & Girls Club, to hosting blood drives for the community, to organizing Angel Tree campaigns, to hosting Cut-a-Thons for hair donations to cancer patients, Covenant students are joyfully practicing servant leadership.
