  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Testimony Tuesday: Equipping Leaders

    "The educational system that is in place here is ideal and it fits my son perfectly." Who is Covenant Academy? from Covenant Academy on Vimeo.   Read More...

  • Parent Testimony: Education the Way it Used to Be

    It was important for us to find the right fit for our two children. Their care and safety is our number one priority. We wanted a school that planned out all 13 years of our children’s spiritual, emotional and intellectual growth.   Read More...

  • Testimony Tuesday

    Our family found Covenant Academy last spring for our oldest son and it has changed our lives for the better! He came into first grade at Covenant in March and we immediately noticed a change! He was all of a sudden confident, excited about going to school every day and making great grades!   Read More...

  • Parent Testimony: 3 Components of Student Leadership Development

    When we moved to the Houston area several years ago, our highest priority was finding the right school for our family. Academic excellence is certainly important to us, but we know there is more to education than the proverbial “Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic.” Our desire was to find a school that would encourage leadership and growth both in and outside of the classroom. I am happy to say we made the right choice in Covenant Academy.   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...
