Mission

The Covenant School is a ministry of Covenant Presbyterian Church, created to assist Christian parents and the church by providing an exceptional academic education founded upon and informed by the Word of God. Our greatest desire is that our students will know God. We equip our students to have a Biblical worldview, to embrace their calling in this world as image-bearers of God, to impact culture and society for Christ, and to realize their potential for the greater purpose of glorifying and enjoying God forever.

History

The Covenant School was founded in August 2001 as a ministry of Covenant Presbyterian Church. It was created to be a school that taught from a Reformed Christian worldview. That is to say, teachers would teach students in ways that relate God’s Word to every aspect of life.

Since its first year, The Covenant School has grown in size and continues to offer more academic and after school opportunities each year.

The first 6th grade class to graduate from Covenant was in 2007. Since then, our graduates are continually accepted into the finest Nashville schools each year.

God has abundantly blessed The Covenant School with Board of Trustee members, administrators and teachers who clearly understand their calling to train covenant children for kingdom service while adhering to the highest academic standards. Covenant truly is where 21st-century learning meets timeless Truth.

Statement of Faith

As a ministry of Covenant Presbyterian Church, The Covenant School adheres to solid Biblical theology. Our doctrinal basis is the Bible, which is the inspired and inerrant Word of God, and subordinate to it, the Westminister Confession of Faith, which is the faithful summary of Reformed Biblical theology.

“Reformed” defines the doctrinal beliefs of the Presbyterian Church in America, which holds that the purist expressions of scriptural doctrine are found in the Calvinistic creeds, particularly the Westminister Confession of Faith.

  • We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the HolySpirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.
  • We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that all are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure, except by His mercy.
  • We believe that salvation is by God alone as He sovereignly chooses those He will save. We believe His choice is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him, alone, for salvation.
  • We believe that God is gracious and faithful to His people not simply as individuals but as families in successive generations according to His Covenant promises.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow Him.
  • We believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.
  • We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
