Students are admitted to Covenant based on previous academic performance, recommendations from a pastor and former teacher, an admission questionnaire, interview and placement testing.

Class Rank
Covenant ranks its students in accordance with the Uniform Grading Scale policy as designed and approved by the Commission on Higher Education. Parents may access the rank of their student(s) from the guidance department at any time following the completion of ninth grade year. Given the size of each class, the overall academic strength of our student body, and the rigorous curriculum required of each student, we do not consider class rank as a predictor of success in college. One hundred percent of Covenant graduates who apply to college have been accepted and have received scholarship assistance.

International Student Enrollment
Covenant is a non-immigrant federally approved school.
