Student & Parent Resources

Academic Coaching: New Program Offering from the Academic Resources Department
Academic Coaching is a service that has been previously offered at CDS but is being expanded for the next academic year to include lower, middle, and high school. The goal is to provide test-taking strategies, study skills, time management techniques, and organizational help for students. It will also include "light tutoring." This is a 1:1 program which will be individualized toward a student's specific learning style, strengths, and weaknesses. There is a fee in addition to tuition for participation in this program. Session quantity varies with the grade and schedule of the student. Space is limited. For more information, please contact Rebekah Leonard, Director of Academic Resources, at rleonard@covenantday.org.

High School

College Admissions Camp - August 11-15
Covenant Day School is offering a College Admissions Camp for any rising juniors and/or seniors interested in getting a jump on the college admissions process. College Admissions Camp will provide a combination of SAT/ACT preparation, college essay and résumé writing, and an individualized timeline to help each student better prepare for the admissions process. Students will hear from a panel of college admission counselors as well as other professionals about the entire college admissions process, including scholarship tips and interview advice. Students will experience a mock interview, complete two essays and a résumé, as well as gain a broader perspective on the college search and application process.

The three-day camp will be held Monday, August 11; Wednesday, August 13; and Friday, August 15 from 1:00 - 5:00 p.m. For more information, contact Heather Mills at  hmills@covenantday.org.
