Mission / Philosophy / Objectives:

The Christian Liberal Arts and Sciences is a tradition that has long prepared students at The Covenant School for academic achievement. This approach provides students with the tools they need for success in any field, teaching them to read closely, think critically, reason logically, and speak persuasively. Covenant scholars are invited to a life of virtue founded upon the truths of the Christian faith, calling them to recognize the good, the true, and the beautiful, and to live a life consistent with those things.
