Lower School

Providing a Foundation for Learning

Lower School is an exciting introduction to the wonderful world of learning. The lower school years are a time of building core competencies in the hearts and minds of children. We take great joy in partnering with families to provide an excellent education that educates the whole child through a strong academic program, biblical integration, and a developmentally appropriate environment to foster a love for learning, self-confidence, and maturing interpersonal skills. Lower school students receive a comprehensive education with instruction in Bible, science, social studies, English, math, music, art, physical education, computer, library, and Spanish. In addition, field trips which are directly related to subjects being studied, help enrich the curriculum.

Because the training that occurs in the lower school years forms the foundation for all that is to follow, we strive to educate with excellence.

Our teachers are committed Christians who have been trained professionally, are licensed or pursuing licensure if new, and are afforded multiple opportunities to continue their professional development. Our teachers integrate biblical thought into the various areas of study, and they utilize Scripture to reveal God's nature, our spiritual condition, and the importance of our relationship with Him.

Community

We joyfully commit that our students will be known and loved. Covenant Day offers countless school-wide community building activities throughout the school year in addition to lower school events. Annual events include our Back to School Picnic, Lower School Christmas Concert, Lower School Father/Daughter Dance, Fiesta Bingo Night, and more!

Growing Hope

In a time of challenges and uncertainties during the COVID-19 pandemic, Covenant Day wanted to find new ways to offer hope to our community, while finding ways to get our youngest students engaged and learning outdoors. Growing Hope, Covenant Day's newest lower school restoration and sustainability initiative, was kicked off in the backyards of more than 50 of our lower school families in April 2020. The project gives families a chance to provide hope for our community through gardening.
