While academics are a priority at Covenant Academy and seen as a means of building character, Covenant Academy aims to develop a well-rounded student who finds enjoyment in other activities such as sports, music, and leadership, to name a few. These activities also provide opportunity for students to grow in godly character, mature physically and learn to work and serve with others.
At the very heart of Christian education is the staff’s desire for the spiritual growth and vitality of the student body. As a part of this mission, regular chapel programs will be provided that aim to spiritually challenge students. Covenant Academy has Chapel programs that are biblically sound, morally and spiritually edifying, and inspirational. Parents are welcome to attend our Chapel programs at any time.
Community Service opportunities are provided by Covenant Academy each semester. Ministries served include: Samaritan’s Purse, FBCPP, RCS, and the Veteran’s Home. Family service projects are encouraged and highlighted at monthly chapel programs.
EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
Covenant Academy offers various clubs based on the interest and support of students. Clubs may be formed to enhance the academic interest or to provide extracurricular activities. Clubs will be formed when students express interest, are willing to provide guided leadership, and a faculty sponsor is available.
