Covenant Classical School began with the vision of a small group of Fort Worth families in 1999. These families recognized the need for a Christ-centered, academically rigorous school that valued the biblical role of parents in the education of children. As the number of interested families grew, a distinctly Christian and classical vision for education emerged, and Covenant opened its doors that fall with just 14 students in a rented church building.
Significant growth in the early years was evidence of God’s profound grace and the community’s interest in this distinct model 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. In 2007, Covenant purchased land in west Fort Worth for a permanent campus, and two weeks later celebrated the school’s first graduation ceremony.
By the grace of God, the generosity of Covenant donors, and the tireless work of many volunteers, our campus and facilities have been developed over time. After years of holding classes in rented facilities, the 2009-2010 school year began on Covenant’s permanent campus with three classroom buildings, an administration building, a football field, and a playground. Our permanent Upper School building was constructed in 2013, and after years of enrollment growth, an addition to that building was completed in 2022, including new classrooms, a dining hall, a research library, and an outdoor amphitheater and courtyard. As our school and programs continue to grow, we plan to add a permanent Grammar School and expand the athletics facilities on our campus.
