Covenant Classical School’s mission is to train our students to live and think according to a biblical, Christ-centered worldview. We accomplish this by partnering with parents to provide a rigorous, classical education that instills a lifelong love of learning.
Our Statement of Faith
The statement of faith is the foundation on which Covenant is based. It reflects the key elements of Christianity that are taught in various ways throughout the grade levels. The substance of these statements is considered primary doctrine at Covenant Classical School. Secondary (or divisive) issues are not presented as primary doctrine.
1: We believe the Bible to be the only inerrant, authoritative Word of God.
2: We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
3: We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
4: We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary.
5: We believe that salvation is by grace through faith alone.
6: We believe that faith without works is dead.
7: We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
8: We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved to the resurrection of life and they that are lost to the resurrection of damnation.
9: We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
EARLY YEARS GROWTH
Significant growth in the early years was evidence of God’s profound grace and the community’s interest in this distinct style of education. Covenant’s enrollment increased, and our student population quickly outgrew both the first and second rented facilities. As the third school location was secured, Covenant’s leadership accelerated their search for a permanent “home” for the school and continued to increase grade-level offerings to the expanding schools of Logic and Rhetoric.
BUILDING A FUTURE
2007 was a momentous year for the school. Covenant purchased a 36-acre tract of land for a permanent campus, and two weeks later celebrated the school’s first graduation ceremony: The future never looked brighter! As increasing enrollment continued to “burst the seams” of the third temporary location, a capital campaign commenced. In a remarkable one-year span of time, funds were raised to complete the land purchase, prepare the site, and break ground for Phase One of a multi-year construction plan.
A PERMANENT CAMPUS
By the grace of God, the generosity of Covenant donors, and the tireless work of many volunteers, the 2009-2010 school year began on Covenant’s permanent campus. Three classroom buildings, an administration building, a football field, and a playground were just the beginning of a multi-year plan prepared to accommodate many students to come.
In 2011, Covenant launched the next phase of the campaign to construct its first permanent building on campus. The design included a 31,000-square-foot building with 11 classrooms, a competitive gym, and an auditorium. Through God’s provision and an amazing $1.1 million gift Covenant began construction in December of 2012. The first day of classes for the Upper School building began in November, 2013. Covenant announced the next capital campaign in January of 2016, raising funds to build wings onto this building to accommodate continued growth.
