Covenant intentionally follows what’s commonly called a “covenant school” model, meaning that the school exists to assist Christian parents in fulfilling their responsibility to raise their children in light of God’s Word. The goal of the application process, including the entrance testing and family interview, is to ensure as much as possible that the family and the school can form a productive partnership in the students’ spiritual and academic growth.
