  • Rhetoric Reflection: Selflessness

    “Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”Philippians 2:4 (ESV)Something happened to me recently that really touched me, and I thought I would just share it with you. My dad loves road trips and camping; almost every night he will come home and research where to go and what to see. So, two weeks before school started, my family and I were planned to go on a road trip.   Read More...

  • Rainbows

    After the flood in Genesis 8, God sent a rainbow to remind Noah and his family of His love. He would bring beauty from the destruction of the flood. After being flooded by Hurricane Harvey, God has sent Covenant Academy many rainbows as well.   Read More...

  • Reconstruction Begins!

    I'm happy to say that reconstruction will begin on Wednesday, Sept. 7! The construction crew will hang sheet rock in the most critical classrooms first so that we can get back to our campus as soon as possible.   Read More...

  • Parent Testimony: The Way God Created Us to Learn

    As our thirst for knowledge and our capacity to learn increases as we develop, so does our curriculum and the richness and complexity of information that we can process and retain.As an infant/young child, our brains are able to process simple information, such as square, circle, red, blue. As we grow, fine motor skills come in and we learn to hold a pencil and write and jump. Then we can begin to memorize huge chunks of information and easily recite it at will.   Read More...

  • Testimony Tuesday: You Will Fall in Love

    I almost guarantee that if you tour the school you will fall in love, just like I did.Several years ago my two children started at Covenant Academy and have been thriving ever since. I am so grateful God guided me toward this school. If you are looking for a classical Christian K-12 school, this very well could be the right one for you.   Read More...

  • Testimony Tuesday: Searching for a Kindergarten program

    "After seven school tours, we walked into Covenant, saw the beautiful courtyard and surroundings, loving atmosphere and learned more about classical Christian education."As our son approached his kindergarten year, we began to research schools looking for a God centered, stimulating education. We had an amazing experience at a Christian preschool and wanted to help our child stay interested in learning about the Lord. As new believers who had only recently gone from lukewarm ...  Read More...

  • Testimony Tuesday: What is Moses doing on the historical banner?

    Most of my life I have viewed private school as a hoity-toity asylum for snobbish children. Until a few years ago I never thought I’d find reason to subject my child to such a pretentious institution.  To keep this under 500 words, our experience at public school was disappointing (that’s not just being brief, but also very kind).   Read More...

  • Testimony Tuesday: We weren't in the market for private schools.

    When we found Covenant we weren’t in the market for private schools. We had toured a few schools over the past year, but we were not convinced that the education offered by any of the schools that we visited was worth extra investment. The public elementary school in our neighborhood had pretty good ratings after all, and the other schools we visited didn’t seem to offer much more than slightly better academics with the addition of a religious education component.Because Christ is th...  Read More...

  • Testimony Tuesday: I am SO joining!

    “Thank you for enrolling me at Covenant.” I hear this gratitude from my teenage son weekly this year, his first year at Covenant Academy.Ryan visited on a shadow day last winter and half-way through the day enthusiastically announced, “I'm so joining. I AM SO JOINING!”Joining is not the verb you would expect, but that's precisely what you do at CA. You link.   Read More...

  • Testimony Tuesday: Unexpected Grace and Love

    Covenant has been a real blessing in our lives, and especially the openness and community inclusion that we felt from the very beginning. We were in a classical university model program before coming to Covenant, and though the academic and curricular transition was what we expected, we did not expect to find the grace and love that permeates the halls and courtyard every day. The steady breeze blowing through the trees in the courtyard is a constant companion to an ever-present awareness that G...  Read More...

  • Testimony Tuesday: Chapel

    "The chapel service is a place where I see God's grace everywhere I look! I love the learning and building I hear in the questions and the answers by grade level. I haven't ever stayed to eavesdrop on the "house huddles" before.   Read More...

  • Choose the Best Candidate

    The presidential race isn’t the only important decision in which parents have a vote. Most children spend more waking hours in the school parents choose than any other location besides their home. Children spend on average up to seven hours in a school day, 35 hours a week and over 1,000 hours per school year.   Read More...

  • Testimony Tuesday: I am only a Grandma...

    For our family, our initial concern was that we find a Christian based school so that our values would be instilled each day as she embarked on her coming years of education.  We needed to be sure the Bible was an intricate part of her daily routine, and continue to be, throughout her life.We had her enrolled, initially, in a different school, believing that all Christian schools were alike. We were wrong.   Read More...

  • Parent Testimony: Community

    One of the reasons we chose Covenant Academy was the small community. We wanted our daughter to attend a small school with a small teacher to student ratio because we knew she would flourish in this kind of environment.Our daughter started out by going to Camp Covenant the summer before she began Kindergarten. It was there that she met her Kindergarten teacher and other staff and students that made her feel loved and accepted. She was able to experience the culture of the school before...  Read More...

  • Obeying Those in Authority

    “Do everything without grumbling or arguing…” Philippians 2:14 (NIV)Often times our teachers, parents, or other people in authority over us, will ask us to do things such as clean our rooms, finish our chores, or to whisper as we walk through the halls. However, we may not want to do these things because we find them to be time consuming, boring, or we might be busy doing something else. When we are faced with this problem we might think, “Should we obey those in authori...  Read More...

  • Break from School, not from Character

    “…just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:28 (NIV)Who is excited for Christmas break? Me too! We have sixteen days off to spend with our families and enjoy time away from school.   Read More...

  • How to Choose a School

    There are three C’s that define every school. Curriculum is taught, culture and community are caught.  If you are searching for a school be sure to ask about these three C’s.  Curriculum is the course that is set for each class, for the year, and for the future.  Read More...

  • Feasting on Thankfulness

    "Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house,  they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart…"  Acts 2:46 (NASB) The King of King invites us to sit at His table and feast. He dines with us, talks with us, fellowships with us. His table is not stiff or stuffy but warm and inviting.   Read More...
