Curriculum

The curriculum at Covenant Christian School is chosen specifically and carefully to provide a well-balanced, solid foundation in all core subjects, best suitable for each class.  Our teachers lead our students to see how the lesson at hand fits into the larger picture of God and His purpose for their lives.  We strive to challenge students to think beyond just memorizing facts in order to develop problem-solving skills for the future.  We utilize computers, interactive technology, and online resources to prepare our students to be on the cutting edge of influence and productivity.
