Choosing a school is one of the most important decisions a parent will ever make, and we are grateful you believe Covenant’s program of academic rigor and spiritual formation will equip your son or daughter for college and beyond. We also hope you will take time to consider thoughtfully the needs of the school, and the role you can play in advancing the mission.
At most independent schools, tuition covers most of the basic costs of educating students each year. However, there is a gap between actual costs and what parents pay. The reason is simple: If schools charged the full amount to educate each student, many families would not be able to afford it. Instead, the gap is made up through fundraising. At Covenant, the Annual Auction, restricted giving, and the Covenant Fund bridge the gap. These donations are used to pay for instructional materials, technology tools, professional development for our faculty, and many other things needed to operate the school day to day.
There is a large community of generous people who choose to invest in your child’s education each year, including our Board of Directors, school personnel, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni, and friends. Through the Covenant Fund, Auction, restricted giving, and scholarship giving, Covenant receives donations for totaling nearly $1 million each year.
