EXPLORE

  • "Covenant helped my child to step outside the box. I never thought in a million years my son would sing, dance, and perform in a school musical, but he did it! And from that, he learned that he actually enjoys theater. Who knows if anything will come from that first experience, but I can tell it brought him confidence knowing he could step outside of his comfort zone in a safe and loving environment. I’m so thankful he had that opportunity before moving on to a bigger school for 7th grade."

    Ann Moore Parent

The Covenant School is excited about our new enrichment program, where students of all ages (K-6th) will EXPLORE new ideas and encounter unique experiences in the arts, athletics, and academics.
