Thank you for your curiosity in The Covenant School.

Selecting a school for your child is an important process that can sometimes feel overwhelming. Our goal throughout the private school admissions process is to get to know you, your family, and your child. We want you to feel known and welcomed. Covenant is an intentionally small school where relationships are prioritized and we want the admissions process to give you a taste of Covenant. The best way to get to know Covenant is to take a tour.  Please give us a call or email and schedule a time to come in and discover everything that makes Covenant so special.
