Restoration & Sustainability
Students are engaged in lessons and activities that foster restoration of broken aspects of nature and humanity and develop problem-solving skills to support sustainable environments and communities. See how students are using their gifts to impact others through ContainIt, Restore 525, Growing Hope, and CREATE.
Student life is centered around developing meaningful friendships, engaging in community, and exploring interests. Through student clubs and organizations, service projects, discipleship groups, and school-wide spirit events, it's easy to get plugged in!

What I love most about Covenant Day is the community that portrays the picture of the church and walking with parents, students, and faculty who love and honor the Lord.

All for the Lord
Before we get on the line at a cross country meet we all run 20 yards out and then huddle up and remind ourselves that we are not running for ourselves, we are not running just to finish or to get a time we want. We are running for God and for the guys around us. That gives us the motivation to lay every last ounce of energy on the course.

Home Away from Home
Being far from our family is difficult, but Covenant Day gave us a second home. From the moment we first stepped foot on campus, everyone has always been so friendly and welcoming. The academics are rigorous but manageable because the teachers are always glad to help. Our favorite part about Covenant Day has been getting to know our fabulous host and running on the cross-country team!

Christ is at the Forefront
What I love most about being in the lower school is the excitement that whatever we are doing, I get to share God's word. He is woven throughout every subject. No matter what I'm teaching, Christ is at the forefront.
Stephanie Dennison (CDS Faculty and Parent)
A Biblical Foundation
I believe the commitment that faculty have made to honor the Lord in everything they do, especially in delivering academic excellence from a Biblical foundation, is a key to the uniqueness of CDS. The more I am here the more I am impressed with how our teachers teach so well and do so from a place of strength grounded in Scripture.

Partnering with Parents
What has impressed us the most about the faculty, staff, and families at Covenant Day is their ability to reinforce the core values and biblical training that we have tried to instill in our children. We embrace our role as parents to be the primary disciple-makers in our kids' lives, but to have a partner like CDS speak the same truth when our kids are tired of listening to us has been a tremendous gift to our family.Lindsay & Wes Barry (LS Parents)
