A TK-12 Christ-centered,
College Preparatory School

More than 750 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy, active lifestyle. In 2012, Covenant Day students felt compelled to respond to this staggering statistic. These students, along with the help and guidance of the faculty, created This Green Fish to respond to the growing hunger needs in the local community and abroad. This Green Fish ran for several years, before transitioning to the student led initiative, Restore 525, in 2017.

What is Aquaponics?

Aquaponics is farming technology which combines hydroponics and aquaculture to create a sustainable system in which fish and plants grow simultaneously. The plants, which are grown in rocks, are watered by the pond or tank that the fish are in. This serves to both clean the water and provide the plants with the nutrients they need to survive.

What is RestOre 525?

Restore 525 is a student-led initiative within Covenant Day’s sustainability program. Our mission is “By God’s grace, Restore 525 has been called to partner with global communities to cultivate long-term hope through agricultural restoration and sustainable aquaponics.”

How is CDS involved in Haiti?

Covenant Day School has been sending teams of students and faculty to Haiti since 2007. With the addition of a fulltime class the teams will be getting considerably larger, and a full-scale system is being designed and implemented in Grand Guave Haiti.
