Our passion for excellence continues in the high school through programs that foster intellectual and spiritual maturity.
Covenant Day School offers a rigorous academic curriculum infused with a biblical worldview so that students will be well-prepared for their futures. We desire for our students to learn how to learn. We want them to gain knowledge, but to then move beyond knowledge acquisition to understanding and applying that knowledge. Covenant Day offers a well-rounded, comprehensive program that includes college preparatory, honors, and AP courses in the disciplines of English, math, science, history, bible, art, music, drama, foreign language, physical education, health, yearbook, and journalism. Nearly half of our students take AP courses, with more than 90 percent earning a score of 3 or higher on their AP exams. Since 2006, the inaugural year of our high school, Covenant Day has had 15 National Merit Finalists and more than 30 National Merit Commended.
Our students learn from outstanding Christian educators who also serve as coaches, advisors, and mentors. More than 70% of our high school faculty hold post-baccalaureate degrees. Additionally, our faculty participates in a variety of professional development opportunities throughout the school year. Our guidance staff works closely with each of our students, offering a variety of services including course selection, personal counseling, advising, assistance with the college admissions process, and college scholarship searches.

Through advisory groups and homeroom devotions, our students benefit from peer-to-peer accountability as they develop genuine friendships!
When Covenant Day School students heard about the conditions on Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, they knew they had to do something. After returning from the reservation, a team of students rolled up their sleeves and got to work on transforming a used shipping container into dormitory space to provide a refuge for three teens on the reservation.
