In the Fall of 1983… in an effort to disciple their own children, two separate groups of Covenant Church parents set up two cooperative classes in their homes. One group was made up of four-year-olds and the other was five-year-olds. The success of these two efforts led to the establishment of Covenant School in the fall of 1983. Fifty-one students, all Covenant Church members, comprised two kindergarten classes and one first grade class. The head of school was Betty Longino.
In 1984, Keith Currie became the principal and added second grade. Over the next few years, the school expanded to eighth grade, where it is today. The first graduating eighth grade class was in 1988.
Through the years, the school has opened its doors to the surrounding community and has maintained its goal to disciple students through Christian education. Covenant Christian School has continued to add buildings and programs that further the goal of preparing students to understand their world, to communicate with their world, and to influence their world for Jesus Christ.
Covenant Christian School is a ministry of Covenant Church of Mobile.
Covenant Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
We are currently members of the following organizations:
Due to our recent accreditation, we are also eligible to compete in the Alabama Christian Athletic Association (ACAA) through their affiliation with the American Association of Christian Schools, our accrediting agency. This provides us the opportunity to play in various invitational events and state tournaments/meets. We will likely also become members of the Panhandle Christian Conference (PCC) and the Alabama Independent Schools Association (AISA), although eligibility may not be available until the 2019-20 school year. Both of these affiliations would increase our options for regional and state level competition and help mitigate scheduling risk.
