Statement of Purpose

Covenant Christian School is founded on the belief that "of Him and through Him and to Him, are all things, to whom be glory forever."  The word covenant in our name stands as a confession of faith in the personal, sovereign God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  It identifies our school with a specific philosophy, based on a Biblical world and life view.  We strive to press upon the hearts and minds of each student that this is God's world and by creation and redemption His claims are supreme, and His Word is law. 

We seek to train students to develop and live a consistently  Biblical life.  Our view of education is based on a genuine commitment to the historical Christian faith as revealed in the Holy Scriptures. 

  • Christ is the source of all truth and knowledge:  "...in Whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge."  Colossians 2:3
  • Christ is the creator of all facts:  "For by Him all things are created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions, or principalities or powers, all things were created through Him and for Him."  Colossians 1:16
  • The Bible is the inerrant, complete and all-embracing revelation of God:  "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work."  2 Timothy 3:16-17

Covenant Christian School believes that we are an extension of you, the parents, and will assist you in training your child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.  Our teachers and staff are keenly aware of our high privilege and duty in helping to educate your child to God's glory.  There is great dedication throughout the faculty of our Christian school.  Each strives to give individual instruction, attention, and concern to each child.  All teachers, grades 1 through 6, will hold either a Bachelor's or Masters' degree from an accredited college or university.  Each teacher is a dedicated Christian, committed to a life of godliness.
